rtlbrowse - Allows hierarchical browsing of Verilog HDL source code and library
Allows hierarchical browsing of Verilog HDL source code and library design
files. Navigation through the hierarchy may be done by clicking open areas of
the tree widget and clicking on the individual levels of hierarchy. Inside the
source code, selecting the module instantiation name by double clicking or
selecting part of the name through drag-clicking will descend deeper into the
RTL hierarchy. Note that it performs optional source code annotation when
called as a helper application by gtkwave(1) and when the primary
marker is set. Source code annotation is not available for all supported
dumpfile types. It is directly available for LXT2, VZT, FST, and AET2. For
VCD, use the -o,--optimize option of gtkwave(1) in order
to optimize the VCD file into FST. All other dumpfile types (LXT, GHW) are
unsupported at this time.
To run this program the standard way type:
- rtlbrowse stemsfile
- The RTL is then brought up in a GTK tree viewer. Stems must have been
previously generated with xml2stems(1) or some other tool capable
of generating compatible stemsfiles. Note that gtkwave(1) will
bring up this program as a client application for source code annotation.
It does that by bringing up the viewer with the shared memory ID of a
segment of memory in the viewer rather than using a stems filename.
