fstminer - Man Page

Data mining of FST files


fstminer [option]... [FSTFILE]


Mines FST files for specific data values and generates gtkwave save files to stdout for future reload.


-d,--dumpfile <filename>

Specify FST input dumpfile.

-m,--match <value>

Specifies "bitwise" match data (binary, real, string)

-x,--hex <value>

Specifies hexadecimal match data that will automatically be converted to binary for searches


Indicates that only facnames should be printed in a gtkwave savefile compatible format.  By doing this, the file can be used to specify which traces are to be imported into gtkwave.


Indicates that results are not to stop after the first match.  This can be used to extract all the matching values in the trace.


Show help screen.


fstminer dumpfile.fst --hex 20470000 -n

This attempts to match the hex value 20470000 across all facilities and when the value is encountered, the facname only is printed to stdout in order to generate a gtkwave compatible save file.


fstminer only prints the first time a value is encountered for a specific net.  This is done in order to  cut down on the size of output files and to aid in following data such as addresses through a simulation model.
