OpenAccess C++ API Documentation
The OpenAccess API is a C++ programming interface for integrating design tools and design methodologies through a common, open database. OpenAccess API documentation is part of the every release of an OpenAccess distribution.
The OpenAccess C++ API Programmers guide is for programmers who are developing new applications, or converting existing applications, to run in the OpenAccess environment. The guide assumes that you have a working knowledge of application programming using the C++ programming language.

- Cadence oaScan : Binary and Documentation
oaScan is an unlicensed application that scans the contents of a library and checks for inconsistencies in the OpenAccess design, tech and DMData databases. Optionally, oaScan can repair the inconsistencies and save the databases. Inconsistencies are more common with older versions of OpenAccess. The oaScan application is used to upgrade such data to current quality standards.
