Not really, they used Berkeley spice as a guide and then rewrote it.

Ahmmmm..... Not on your nelly....
PSpice is *propriety* to microsim/orcad/cadence. No other vender would
have been allowed to do this. They also created their own GUI.
All vendors have done exactly the same as what microsim did, i.e. got
their own copy of the Berkeley code and made their own products.
SuperSpice, a very affordable Mixed-Mode
Windows Simulator with Schematic Capture,
Waveform Display, FFT's and Filter Design.
