Command Options Panel

The Command Options panel is obtained from the Commands button in the Tools menu of the Tool Control window. The panel can control the values of internal variables used to define behavior of WRspice commands. These variables can also be set with the set command, though the panel may provide a more convenient interface.

Pressing the Help button pops up a window containing a listing of the variables which can be set with the panel. Clicking on a word in the listing will bring up the help viewer with a description of that variable.

The panel is organized into multiple pages, with each page containing the variables in a particular category. These will be listed below.

Each variable has its own ``box'' in the panel. This box contains a Set button, and optionally a Def button and a text input area. The text input area can take several forms, depending on the type of variable: string, integer, or real. Boolean variables have only the Set button. Text can be entered into the area, or in some cases the up/down arrows to the right of the text area can be clicked to adjust the text.

When the Set button is active, the variable is set to the value shown in the text area (if any), and the text area is frozen, i.e., can't be edited. The text area can be changed only with the Set button inactive, in which case the value in the text area is arbitrary. The value is only known to WRspice when the Set button is active, in which case the variable should appear in the listing brought up by the Variables button in the Tools menu in the Tool Control window.

The Def button will enter the default value for the variable into the text area. This button becomes active if the text area is modified.

The General Page
This page contains entries for variables that are general in nature, affecting more than one command.

The aspice Page
This page contains variables that apply to the aspice command, which initiates asynchronous WRspice runs.

The check Page
This page applies to the check command, which initiates Monte Carlo and operating range analysis.

The diff Page
The entries in this page affect the diff command, which compares simulation output data.

The edit Page
This page applies to the edit command and related, which edit circuit input for WRspice.

The fourier Page
The variables set by entries in this page affect the fourier command, and other commands which perform Fourier analysis.

The help Page
These entries apply to the help system.

The print Page
This page provides entries which apply to the print command. The print command is used to print simulation results or other vector data.

The rawfile Page
These entries apply to the rawfile command, and plot data output in general.

The rspice Page
This page contains entries which apply to the rspice command, which initiates WRspice runs on a remote system.

The source Page
This page contains entries which apply to the source command, which is used (perhaps implicitly) to load circuit files for simulation.

The write Page
These entries apply to the write command, which is used to save simulation data to a file.
