I didn’t do it. All you are going to see is the work-obj First, you have to compile the file; this is called analysis of a design file in VHDL terms.

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.

Obtaining Tony Bybell’s gtkwave gtkwave. The Starting with a design leads you to a download link and directions for a DLX processor simulation. Then I run ghdl -a myfile. See the answer at ‘Elaborating the use of ghdl and gtkwave with an example. I did get a message saying that the object files were a newer format or something along those lines.


The problem is, however, that nothing shows up. While this can be a disadvantage in large models the manula format allows any type or subtype enumeration literal display.

In addition to joining the ghdl discussion list or perusing it’s archives you can file bug reports on the ghdl-updates Tickets page, where you view both open and closed issues. See the gtkwave manual.

So maybe there was an issue with how the vhdl was compiled. I’m planning to develop a Also see the vcd options in that directory should you choose to use VCD instead.

ghdl (1) – Linux Man Pages

I downloaded the latest GHDL version from ghdl. Sign up using Facebook. Then I compiled it with ghdl -a test.

Don’t forget to write the save file after you’ve inserted all your signals in the waveform. In the title of the gtkwave it just says GTKWave – [no file ghdll.

ghdl(1): VHDL compiler/simulator – Linux man page

When I compiled them separately I got error messages. Another is that ghdl saves manuxl signal transactions to it’s ghw dump file. I don’t know if this is exactly relevant to this discussion. As an oversight I didn’t think to amend the ghdl manual to include the word ghsl wherever Windows appeared and release modified manual.


The OS X gtkwave. Most browsers will allow you to see the gtkwave window shot below at full size. You might also note the assignment of ‘X’ to Cin at 60 ns in the gtkwave display, I did it to show the last values assigned in the testbench.

I saved the file ghxl a. The more adventuresome can build ghdl from scratch on OS X, see Instructions for building ghdl Part 0 is about installing the two tools. Doing better would have been a bigger ask. The only real difference in my example is using the ghw waveform format. But what exactly are those. Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled.
