QisMScript - Scripting Language for QisMLib

A user who wants to test out a flow using QisMLib and its extensions can create and execute a sequence of commands that closely mimic the QisMLib API. The console application called qismscript64.exe interprets the script and converts the commands into the appropriate API calls. This makes it very easy to prototype a data flow, verify it and then implement it.

A Simple Scanning Script

Loading and scanning a GDSII or OASIS file is almost always the very first step in any processing flow. Here is a sample script implemented in a few lines.

lib.load_file &filedb=FDB input=C:/data/demo5.gds
Loads/Scan the GDSII file
file.print_cells $filedb=FDB extents
Prints list of cells and their extents
file.print_top_cells $filedb=FDB
Prints the top level cell(s)
file.print_layers $filedb=FDB
prints a list of layers with data
file.print_cell_tree $filedb=FDB
prints a hierarchy tree
lib.unload_file $filedb=FDB
unloads the file (releases memory

Now to execute the script use qismscript64.exe.

qismscript64.exe +script:sample.script -log:sample.log
