(Fwd) [SI-LIST] : Re: viewing the output of LARGE hspice transient runs

One possible method is to use the "CSDF=2" option. This will
force the .tr0 file into a "common simulation data format" that
other tools (other than Awaves) can read in. In addition,
the .tr0 file is now ascii, so you can create a script that will
chop the large file into smaller files and look at them
individually.

Not exactly a great solution, but it gets the job done.
