Detailed usage information for the
" vl zip: Parse Verilog files and write it out as a .vlzip file. Example: vl zip engine.v wrapper.v core.v \\ --search ./simlibs \\ --search ./baselibs \\ --output my-design.vlzip Usage: vl zip [OPTIONS] file.v [file2.v ...] Options: -h,--help Show a brief usage message and exit. --readme Show a more elaborate README and exit. -n,--name=NAME Default is \"design\". Should be a short name that identifies the project that this zip file is parsing. This controls how the file will be presented in the \"Choose Model\" screen in the Module Browser. -o,--output=FILE Default is \"design.vlzip\". Where to write the collected up modules. Typically this should have a .vlzip extension. -s,--search=DIR Control the search path for finding modules. You can give this switch multiple times, to set up multiple search paths in priority order. -I,--incdir=DIR Control the list of directories for `include files. You can give this switch multiple times. By default, we look only in the current directory. --searchext=EXT Control the search extensions for finding modules. You can give this switch multiple times. By default we just look for files named \"foo.sv\" and \"foo.v\" in the --search directories. If you have Verilog files with different extensions, this won't work, so you can add these extensions here. -D,--define=VAR Set up definitions to use before parsing begins. For instance, \"--define foo\" is similar to \"`define foo\" and \"--define foo=3\" is similar to \"`define foo 3\". Note: these defines are \"sticky\" and will override subsequent `defines in your Verilog files unless your Verilog explicitly uses `undef. You can give this option multiple times. --edition=EDITION Which edition of the Verilog standard to implement? Default: \"SystemVerilog\" (IEEE 1800-2012). You can alternately use \"Verilog\" for IEEE 1364-2005, i.e., Verilog-2005. --strict Disable VL extensions to Verilog. -m,--mem=GB How much memory to try to use. Default: 4 GB. Raising this may improve performance by avoiding garbage collection. To avoid swapping, keep this below (physical_memory - 2 GB). "
