[SI-LIST] : viewing the output of LARGE hspice transient runs

A quick question to the list, has anyone sucessfully opened
a large (> 3GByte) .tr0 data file generated by Hspice with the Avant!
Awaves viewer?

The simulation is the result of a colleague's overnite oscillator
startup simulation and seems to have run to completion without errors.


Awaves claims to be unable to open the file. I've also tried the
freeware hsview program and got the same error message.

I know that the Solaris operating system makes a distinction
between regular (<2Gb) and large files (>2Gb) and this makes me suspicious
that there may be a fundamental problem in opening the large .tr0 file
if the viewer wasn't written to account for the need to deal with
the very large file sizes.

Relevant comments and/or experiences solicited :)
