VZTMINER(1)                  Dumpfile Data Mining                  VZTMINER(1)



NAME
       vztminer - Data mining of VZT files

SYNTAX
       vztminer [option]... [VZTFILE]

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

OPTIONS
       -d,--dumpfile <filename>
              Specify VZT 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
       vztminer dumpfile.vzt --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
       vztminer 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.  Note also that the reader algorithm attempts to
       reconstruct bitblasted nets back into their original vectors but this
       is not always successful, specifically in the case where the individual
       bitstrands are dumped in non-sequential order.
