3.1i Modular Design - NGDBUILD doesn't find lower-level NGOs in PIM (assembly mode)

Description

Keywords: modular, unexpanded, find, not found

Urgency: Standard

General Description: If a PIM contains more than one NGO (that is,
the module netlist instantiates another, non-module netlist), NGDBUILD
does not find the lower-level NGO file when run in assemble mode. It
finds the top-level NGO of the PIM okay, but not the lower-level one in
the same directory.

Solution

This problem can be worked around by a adding an explicit search
path "-sd <path_to_pim_directory>" to the NGDBUILD command line.
If a search directory is already in use, the NGOs could be moved into
that directory.

This problem will be fixed in the first 3.1i quarterly release, currently
scheduled for August, 2000.
