xml2stems - Verilator XML to rtlbrowse stems conversion.
xml2stems [ option
Converts Verilator XML AST representation to stems file for use with rtlbrowse.
Intended to replace the obsolete vermin, and in the future, advanced tool
features may possibly use additional data provided by the Verilator AST. Using
"-" as an input filename reads from stdin. Omitting the output
filename outputs to stdout.
- Adds TOP hierarchy for Verilator sim. Not necessary for other
- Display help then exit.
The following is a chain of commands to compile Verilog source and then bring up
gtkwave and rtlbrowse together for source code annotation. This assumes the
file des.fst was already generated from a prior simulation.
- verilator -Wno-fatal des.v -xml-only --bbox-sys
- xml2stems obj_dir/Vdes.xml des.stems
- gtkwave -t des.stems des.fst
