Macro, Tcl/TK, Perl script support

Category : Design Entry and Documentation

Aldec simulators support several scripting methods varying in the level of abstraction and possible applications. They are:

  • Aldec macro language: Commands that allow you to perform most operations that are available via the user interface. They have clear and well-documented syntax.
  • Perl Scripting: Low-level scripts can also be written in Perl (Practical Extraction and Report Language). Perl is an interpreted language optimized for scanning text files, extracting information from those text files, and printing reports based on that information. It is also a good language for many system management tasks.
  • Tcl/Tk scripting: Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a simple scripting language for controlling and extending applications. Tcl together with its extension, Tk, provides a programming system for developing and using graphical user interface (GUI) applications. The interpreter engine built into our simulators supports version 8.4 of the Tcl/Tk standard from command line or GUI.
