**error** syntax of .lib

I've problem with using CMOS 0.35um Library in a circuit.
my hspcie .ep file is:
==================
Inv35
*0.35um Cmos Invertor

*circuit discription
VDD 0 2 DC +5V
VIN 0 1 PULSE 0.2 4.8 2N 1N 1N 5N 20N
M1 3 1 2 0 PMOS L=0.35U W=5U
M2 3 1 0 0 NMOS L=0.35U W=5U

*Library declration
.INCLUDE 'cmos35.inc'

*Analysis & Output
.OPTIONS LIST NODE POST
.OP
.TRAN 200P 20N
.PRINT TRAN V(IN) V(OUT)
.END
============================
as you see I use .inc 'cmos35.txt' command for library that exist in .ep dir.
and this is that library its structure is sth like this:
Code:
.lib nominal
*  This file is for NOMINAL conditions.
*
.model nmos nmos level = 49
+ version =  3.11          acm     =  3             hdif    =  0.5e-6
+ mobmod  =  1.000000e+00  capmod  =  1.000000e+00  nqsmod  =  
......etc

.model pmos pmos level = 49
+ version =  3.11          acm     =  3             hdif    =  0.5e-6
+ mobmod  =  1.000000e+00  capmod  =  1.000000e+00  nqsmod  =  
......etc

.endl nominal

.lib fast
*  This file is for FAST conditions.

............sth like above

.endl fast

.lib slow
*  This file is for SLOW conditions (high tox ... mismatch low).
...............sth like above
.endl slow


.lib passive

*****************************************************************************
* well-to-substrate diode

.model dwell d cj0=1e-4 is=1e-5 m=0.5 bv=40

*****************************************************************************
* parasitic vertical pnp

.model vpnp pnp bf=8 is=1e-17 rb=1200 rc=3000 vaf=35

*****************************************************************************
* capacitors
* note: tc and vc not modelled!

.subckt cpoly top bot topgnd botgnd c=1pF
ctop top topgnd '0.01*c'
cbot bot botgnd '0.12*c'
.ends

.subckt cm2 top bot topgnd botgnd c=1pF
cc top bot c
ctop top topgnd '0.01*c'
cbot bot botgnd '1.2*c'
.ends

.subckt cm4 top bot topgnd botgnd c=1pF
cc top bot c
ctop top topgnd '0.01*c'
cbot bot botgnd '0.2*c'
.ends

.endl passive


but hspice have problem with .lib command how can
1.Why does this error happens?
2.How can I specify one of this transistor for example nmos fast


excuse me if the post is some how untidy[/code]

Added after 3 minutes:

and this is the error:
Code:
**error** syntax of .lib              can not be realized

hspice .lib endl

" .INCLUDE 'cmos35.inc' " i think the command is .lib not include

".lib /*your lib file location and name*/ /*your corner */"

Thank barath
the command
Code:
.lib 'cmos35.txt' fast
is working in another hand I can use the model directly in my code. and maybe the third method is split library to just one model for example cmos35fast.txt .
I am learning and want to know why .inc command isn't support this form (.inc lib corner) ?
what's thier difference and ....
after all Thank you barath.
