Default Newbie Question: No Vsim, Vlib etc in my ModelSim

Hi all,

trying to follow the advice of one of the regulars on this forum and learn
to use the text based version of ModelSim 5.7.

However, using the file-find facility I have not been able to find Vsim and
Vlib on my installed version of Mentor Graphics on my machine. Is this
normal? I figured there was actually meant to be files which could be
accessed via the command interface...

- K

If you are using ModelSim SE, you may have to compile the libraries
yourself. I found some information on how to do this in the Xilinx
suport forum.

They should be there somewhere! On a PC you may have to add the path
to modelsim to your PATH variable. The vsim and vlib binaries are
normally in

c:\program files\modelsim5.7\win32

and have names like vsim.exe, vlog.exe, vcom.exe

On a unix machine, they also need to be in your path.

What operating system are you using?

after spending a bit of time on this problem...I turned out that I had in
fact not installed ModelSim from the seperate CD. Installed it and it works
like a charm

cheers
