+Yosys can also be used to investigate designs (or netlists created
+from other tools).
+The selection mechanism (see slides ``Using Selections''), especially pattern such
+as {\tt \%ci} and {\tt \%co}, can be used to figure out how parts of the design
+are connected.
+Commands such as {\tt submod}, {\tt expose}, {\tt splice}, \dots can be used
+to transform the design into an equivialent design that is easier to analyse.
+Commands such as {\tt eval} and {\tt sat} can be used to investigate the
+behavior of the circuit.
