This is a quite exciting topic.
Please start with the below scripts
Any script for Calibre RVE to differentiate/filter out the DRCs which are inside to stdcells from the top .
Thanks for expressing your intererest! I'll share this with Saunder on Monday and he will probably be able to finalize those two scripts next week and share them with everybody.
Since last week, been eagerly waiting for the scripts.
When we can expect it to be posted.
Thanks again for helping decide which area to focus on. This first technique is a method for comparing two ASCII results databases. It involves a few scripts and uses DESIGNrev to convert the ASCII results databsaes to GDS files, then Calibre DRC to compare the GDS files, and Calibre RVE to check the differences between the GDS files. Saunder also created some example data that can be used to test this flow.
Here are the names of the two scripts that will be used:
Here are the names of the two files for the example data that can be used to familiarize yourself with the flow:
There is also a README file that describes details about the inputs and outputs expected:
I've attached those scripts, test data and README file to a "document" in the Calibre Communities at this location:
Will be very interested to see how it goes for you.

I'm interested in topic 3.
When comparing two GDS file, I always write a DRC rule file with XOR command and excute it. after that, open calibreworkbench and review the output GDS to find the difference.
The topic 3 can provide a more convenient method to do this. right?
thank you so much.
I'm checking with Saunder to see if he can put something together for us on #3. Will let you know how it goes.
I just found this topic and I'd be interested in item 2. Saving out the full window to png.
I think Saunder or someone else here at Mentor is actually considering creating a video on that topic. I'll check with them to see if it's planned to be available soon and let you know.
You can use $V exportView command in DESIGNrev to export your current layout window to a png file.
% set wb [find objects -class cwbWorkBench]
% set V [$wb cget -_layoutView]
% $V exportView png a1720.png
I am interested in 7, changing the database from GDS to OAS
