12.3 PlanAhead - Input buffer overflow, cannot enlarge buffer because scanner uses Reject

Description

When I try to open the netlist design of my project that was created with an EDIF, the PlanAhead tool crashes and the resultant terminal contains the following error:

Input buffer overflow, can't enlarge buffer because scanner uses Reject

What am I doing wrong

Solution

This is a bug with the PlanAhead software that is fixed in PlanAhead tool 12.4. The issue occurs when the EDIF defines a property with a very long string value. The property with the very long string value is normally an unused property and therefore can be manually removed from the netlist.
