IsEd5 is an ASCII text editor similar to Microsoft's Notepad, but enhanced to work with spice netlists.

The advantage of IsEd5 over Notepad are:

  • No text file size limit.
  • Open multiple text files at the same time and tile the windows.
  • Split a window to work on two separate sections of the same file.
  • Standard and Find toolbars make many operations just a button click.
  • Links with all ICAPS modules. Open the active project cir, err, out file or change between ICAPS programs with a button click.
  • Context Sensitive Help, select any netlist line and get help on the syntax used. Example- select a line that starts with "R" and get help on resistors.
  • Select any "*INCLUDE" file and launch the selected file.
