But could you add some more examples on how to actually run a ghdl program and display the waves with gtkwave?

There’s also development toward using ghdl as an llvm front end as well as a purely interpretive version to supplant ghdl-mcode. I’d manua both reading the manual for gtkwave as well as experimenting. The automatic invocation of the gtkwave app by clicking on files is one. It’s the mcode version like on Windowswhich means it doesn’t produce object codes or a standalone executable of a VHDL model with the consequence you can’t bind foreign objects subprograms to the model.

Also see the vcd options in that directory should you choose to use VCD instead. While this can be a disadvantage in large ghfl the ghw format allows yhdl type or subtype enumeration literal display.

I downloaded the latest GHDL version from ghdl.

You’ll end up with a work-obj Russell Uhl Hey, thanks! The original poster asked for some real examples with command line values. Obtaining Tony Bybell’s gtkwave gtkwave.


I mean like some command line input, that would be great and help me get going! This version is derived from svn following the ghdl Tony Bybell provides an email contact on the gtkwave web page but exigencies of paid employment limit his availability.

You’ll also want to understand the implications of the -r run command section 3. I didn’t do it. In the ghdl manual see 1.

Still, my vhdl code compiled. All you are going to see is the work-obj Then I run ghdl -a myfile. It’ll likely be version 0.

The development future for ghdl is bright. In my case, unlike in Ubuntu, I had to analyze code.

In the signals window select a[3: Where ever ‘Windows’ appears it should be read as ‘Windows or other mcode version’. In an mcode version of ghdl the -r run command also elaborates. That as they say is a big ask! The elaborated model only exists in memory at run time and the -e elaborate command is superfluous other than an entry in the working library. It’s only known to run on OS X Post as a guest Name.

So maybe there was an issue with how the vhdl was compiled. When I compiled them together, that is. The Starting with a design leads you to a download link and directions for a DLX processor simulation. The OS X gtkwave. And a check shows that the gtkwave.


The simulation is launched using this command: You should also limit the run time duration with a guard timer should your test bench provide a free running clock. The model quits executing after the last signal event so no stop time need be passed to the run command e.

I don’t know if this is exactly relevant to this discussion. Can someone tell how exactly I can test a vhdl program on my Mac? The object file is not created on Windows. Don’t forget to write the save file after you’ve inserted all your signals in the waveform.

The resolution isn’t so good and it’s Linux centric. You can select an application in the Applications folder and ‘Show Package Contents’ ghld navigate to the doc directory.
