Next: Example Up: .ccshort File Format Previous: Purpose


The file begins with lines of comments beginning with a # symbol and a space. The format of the .ccshort file is as follows:

# cellname.ccshort generated by Carafe of Hemlock Version Alpha.5
# Tech file: techfilename techfiledate
# Fab file : fabfilename fabfiledate
cell1_orient1_cell2_orient2 cell1_instance cell2_instance
where cell1 and cell2 are the cell names, orient1 and orient2 are each either 's' for sideways or 'n' for normal or no transform. The last two entries are the instance names for the cell1 and cell2, respectively. cell1 is always the one on the left, cell2 is on the right, ordering is important.
