Include the named library in the link of the VPI module. This allows
VPI modules to further reference external libraries.
Add directory to the list of directories that will be searched
for header files.
Define a macro named define.
Normally, the output VPI module will be named after the first source
file passed to the command. This flag sets the name (without the .vpi
suffix) of the output vpi module.
When built as a native Windows program (using the MinGW toolchain), by default iverilog-vpi will attempt to locate the MinGW tools needed to compile a VPI module on the system path (as set by the PATH environment variable). As an alternative, the user may specify the location of the MinGW tools via the following option.
-mingw=path Tell the program the root of the MinGW compiler tool suite. The vvp runtime is compiled with this compiler, and this is the compiler that iverilog-vpi expects to use to compile your source code. If this option accompanies a list of files, it will apply to the current build only. If this option is provided on its own, iverilog-vpi will save the path in the registry and use that path in preference to the system path for subsequent operations, avoiding the need to specify it on the command line every time.
iverilog-vpi includes additional flags to let Makefile gurus peek at the configuration of the iverilog installation. This way, Makefiles can be written that handle complex VPI builds natively, and without hard-coding values that depend on the system and installation. If used at all, these options must be used one at a time, and without any other options or directives.
Example GNU makefile that takes advantage of these flags:
--install-dir Print the install directory for VPI modules.
--cflags Print the compiler flags (CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS) needed to compile source code destined for a VPI module.
--ldflags Print the linker flags (LDFLAGS) needed to link a VPI module.
--ldlibs Print the libraries (LDLIBS) needed to link a VPI module.
CFLAGS = -Wall -O $(CFLAGS_$@)
VPI_CFLAGS := $(shell iverilog-vpi --cflags)
CFLAGS_messagev.o = $(VPI_CFLAGS)
CFLAGS_fifo.o = $(VPI_CFLAGS)
messagev.o fifo.o: transport.h
messagev.vpi: messagev.o fifo.o
