PLD_DVE/PLD_DVE_Sim 5.x appears to hang


Keywords: pld_dve, simulation, hangs

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

If Men2XNF8 will hang during pld_dve, and Fncsim8/Timsim8 will hang during
pld_dve_sim, if the $MGC_WD environment variable is not set or is set
improperly. PLD_DVE and PLD_DVE_Sim do not understand a "blank" MGC_WD
variable, even though Mentor programs do.


Set the MGC_WD variable properly. For example:

setenv MGC_WD /home/tony/wants/an/acura/nsx

allows you to process designs underneath the directory
/home/tony/wants/an/acura/nsx. If you want Mentor to behave as if the
MGC_WD variable were not set, use:

setenv MGC_WD .

(Note the period at the end of the command.)
