## Set the Optimisation Mode (0..4)
## 0 : full area optimisation
## 2 : 50% area, 50% delay
## 4 : full delay optimisation
## Used by boog and loon
#M{4}


## Set the Optimisation Level (1..5)
## 1 : poor optimisation - small computation time
## 5 : best optimisation - long computation time
#L{5}


## External Input Delay (in ns)
## Those signals are taken into account to optimise
## the global delay of the circuit.
## Used by boog and loon
#D{
i(3):300;
i(0):100;
jour:120;
}


## Set the list of early outputs
## Some outputs may be critical. They can be 
## optimized in delay before others regardless
## of the optimisation mode.
#E{
porte;
ep_3;
}


## Set the list of auxiliary (intermediate) signals to keep
## This can be used to decrease the memory consuption
## when trying to reorder Bdds. Those signals won't
## be reordered.
#S{
cs_ea;
ef_0;
ef_1;
ef_e4;
}

## The following parameters are used for whith glop
## (Delayed --#D--inputs are also used)

## Fanout factor : the max fanout of the 
## output connector is multiplied by this factor
#T{1000}

## Input Capacitance : The primary inputs of the circuit 
## can have fanout values. (in fF)
#F{
jour:50; 
}

## External Output Capacitance (in fF)
## Used by boog and loon
#C{
porte:50;
}

## External Input Impedance (in Ohms)
## Used by boog and loon
#I{
jour:5000;
}

## Buffered Input : this is a list of primary inputs whith 
## the number of buffer you want to add.
#B{
clock:1;
}
