The WRspice Daemon and Remote SPICE Runs

WRspice can be accessed and run from a remote system for asynchronous simulation runs, for assistance in computationally intensive tasks such as Monte Carlo analysis, and as a simulator for the Xic graphical editor. This is made possible through a daemon (background) process which controls WRspice on the remote machine. The daemon has the executable name ``wrspiced'', and should be run as a root process on the remote machine. Typically, this can be initiated in the system startup script, or manually. Of course, the remote machine must have a valid WRspice executable present.

The wrspiced program is described in B.4.
