Finally! The fabs are turning out a standard process definition format (DB) such that technology files and rule-sets may be automatically generated ... instead of manually entered. TCL would'nt be my first choice (maybe XML?). And PyCells will be a huge improvement over Skill-Based Pcells ... as you can do some pretty nifty OO stuff with Python. That is, why should every Pcell have to start from scratch ... and not just inherit already defined structures (via arrays, diffusion structures, cascoding structures etc).
