.nodeset Line

General Form:
.nodeset v(nodname)=val | nodename=val ...
.nodeset v(12)=4.5 v(4)=2.23

This line helps the program find the dc or initial transient solution by making a preliminary pass with the specified nodes held to the given voltages. The restriction is then released and the iteration continues to the true solution. The .nodeset line may be necessary for convergence of bistable or astable circuits. In general, this line should not be necessary. Note that the ``v( )'' around the node name is optional.
