A.2 Value Range Definitions

Bartels AutoEngineer® Dokumentation

User Language value ranges are defined for a series of index variable type elements and system function parameters. This section contains a complete survey over these definitions. In the description for the index variable types (see appendix B) and system functions (see appendix C) the herein defined value ranges are referenced by the corresponding designation of the value range.

 

A.2.1 Standard Value Ranges (STD)

The following codes are valid for all caller types. I.e., they define valid value ranges for special elements of index variable types and/or system function parameters in the Schematic Editor, the Layout Editor, the Autorouter, the CAM Processor and the Chip Editor interpreter environments. The naming of the value range definitions emerges from the keyword STD and a continuous number.

for standard drill class F (6) and mirrored drill class H (0x0880).
