S P P -is- Synopsys Plus Perl

SPP (Synopsys Plus Perl * ) is a Perl module that wraps around Synopsys' shell programs. The primary application of SPP is to allow Synopsys products to have complete shell-like capabilities when run interactively. This means history, command-completion, emacs/vi line editing, keymap customization, shell redirection, etc. SPP was written to wrap around any of Synopsys' shells. This includes:

  bc_shell        dt_shell        pp_shell
  budget_shell    fc2_shell       psyn_shell
  ca_shell        fm_shell        pt_shell
  dc_shell        fpga_shell      ra_shell
  dc_shell-t      lc_shell        
  dp_shell        pe_shell
