This manual describes the programs in the 1983 VLSI Tools Distribution put together by the CS Division of the Department of EECS, UC Berkeley. The distribution consists of about twenty programs for designing and analyzing VLSI circuits. The programs were designed to run on VAXes under the Berkeley 4.1 distribution of Unix, and are not known to run under any other systems. The tools are available to the public on an internal-use-only basis. (March 1983, Revised April 14, 1983)
