fst2miner — Data mining of FST files

Syntax

fstminer [option]... [FSTFILE]

Description

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

Options

-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
-n,--namesonly
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.
-c,--comprehensive
Indicates that results are not to stop after the first match. This can be used to extract all the matching values in the trace.
-h,--help
Show help screen.

Examples

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.

Limitations

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.
