Running vcomp


To compile a vcomp program simply issue the 'vcomp' command with the normal set of flags you are used to:

	vcomp a.v -f b.f -l xx.lib pli.o -P pli.tab

By default the compiler will produce a linked code file called 'vrun' in the current directory that you can run straight away.

The compiler uses the file-name extensions of files to determine what type of data a file contains, a '.a' or '.o' suffix is assumed to be a compiled file or library, presumably containing code for a PLI, these files are ignored by vcomp and are passed directly to the linker. All other files that are not introduced with flags like -v or -f are assumed to be Verilog® source files.

vcomp uses gpg public key encryption for encrypted verilog source libraries, a short header at the beginning of each library informs the compiler that the library is in an encrypted form.

(NOTE: do not use this feature for the sourceforge release - the private key is not)


To run a compiled program simply run it ie 'vrun'.
