ASSURA - failed to build VDB

Hi everyone

Sorry if this has been posted before. I tried to find a 
solution/explanation using Google and found a tread on that explains my problem exactly (*1). There, 
Andrew has suggested that the Assura version could be a problem, but 
there is no real conclusion to it.

Therefore I thought that I would try my chances here. I have everything 
set-up (or so I think) and LVS is running. The problem only relates to 
DRC where I get the following errors:

error:  Illegal modifier 'withIntersection'.
    645. e18H = geomOr(drc(SAB DIFF (sep < 0.24) withIntersection))
*WARNING* Failed to build VDB. Cannot submit DRC Run.

I am running the following versions

Cadence 5.0.33_USR2.34.8
Assura 3.1

I hope that someone can help me out here.

Build a Raster plot display
Hi, I want to build a raster plot which is a plot of Timestamps vs. Trial numbers. Each trial can have random number of timestamps which are displayed as dot=92s along the x-axis. The range of x-axis can be set constant (i.e. every trial will have the number of timestamps less than the max. x-axis range). The display should have the timestamps (which can be simple count values) on the x-axis and trial number on y-axis. For e.g.: Trial 1 timestamps array consists of [1,10,15,40]; trial 2 the timestamp array can be [4,8,16,24,35,68,90]. When a new array for timestamps is available for the dis...

Looking for a Win32 module ==> build a top-like utility
Hi Is there a (Win32) module that would help me creating a utility that works like the UNIX tool 'top'? (provides the list of processes and their CPU usage) Thanks Philippe What is your interest in obtaining a module for a unix/linux 'top' like feature? Is it for a program you are/have writen [something special] or simply to use it to see the CPU usage of the various processes & threads on your Windows OS? If you are only interested in knowing the CPU usage of processes/threads running on your Windows platform, use the existing features within NT, 2000 & XP. In ...

New U.S. tv show with students building remote control robots

Assura Installation
Hi All, I would like to install Assura's CDB version with IC5141(correct me if they are incompatible). As far as I have searched, i have found that I need to be installing it in a separate directory and set path variable $ASSURAHOME to that bin directory.

Modeling Building with Transformations
Hi All- When building a regression model I am curious if there is consensus in the statistics community on the following: 1. If you have a predictor variable X1 which you transform (say to X1_Log) , should any interactions in the model involve this transformed variable? For example is X1_log * X2 preferred over X1 * X2 given that X1_log is in the model? 2. If you transform a predictor, again say X1_Log and you find that it is beneficial to add a quadratic term should you follow a sequence of : (1) transform X1 to X1_Log (2) Center the variable by subtracting from X1_Log the mean of X1_Log ...

Want to build GNU ftp (from inetutils) using DJGPP
Hi all, I'm sick of the ftp.exe that comes with Windows because it doesn't have passive mode, so I found inetutils offered by GNU, which contains the source for ftp. I'm hoping that it's just like the UNIX one, which has passive mode, if I'm not mistaken. So in order to build the source that I obtained from GNU, I installed the latest version of DJGPP (set my environment variables and path, and downloaded/installed the socket libraries). A hello world program compiles, but I can't make ftp using the makefile that comes with the ftp source. I get the following err...
