Frequently Asked Questions: Help with Java Electric
Electric has two simulators built in: ALS (our own) and IRSIM (from Stanford University).
The GNU distribution does not include IRSIM, because it
cannot be redistributed under the rules of the Free Software Foundation.
If you wish to add IRSIM, you can download
the additional source code.
Why does Electric throw an exception when I try to see 3D?
The most likely reason is that you have not properly installed Java3D.
Make sure the CLASSPATH environment variable is set properly.
