Spectre simulation error with Neocircuit

Spectre simulation error with Neocircuit

When I run NeoCircuit 'get output', a spectre simulation is launched and it
gives the error above. Any idea where is the mistake?
Thanks,
OkGuy

I'm not sure of the exact reason why this is happening with NeoCircuit, but if
you install MMSIM60 and put <mmsim60instDir>/tools/bin in your UNIX path
before the IC5141 path, it will pick up spectre from that path. This uses the
new front end, which supports more than one global statement (not necessarily
the first thing in the netlist too).

Regards,

Andrew.

Could it be because I use Bash Shell?
Is C-shell mandatory to use icfb & NeoCkt?

That seems a pretty unlikely reason.
