Default VCD Files Viewer?

Hello

I just generated with modelsim a VCD file and I wonder if it is possible
to view this VCD file with modelsim? I tried to open it but I got the
error message:

# WLF Error: File is not a WLF file: vcd.dump
# Cannot open file: vcd.dump

Unfortunately I cant install gtkwave on my machine, because I dont have
root rights. Is there any other simple tool that I could use under Linux?

Cheers
Heinrich

Convert your VCD to WLF using vcd2wlf tool from ModelSim.

You don't have to have root rights to install software under Linux. It
is always possible to install software in your home folder. The
destination can usually be specified with the ./configure call.

However, especially with gtkwave and its dependency to gnome there might
be some dependency missing that you don't have installed. Which then
brings you in the same situation as before.

Cheers,

Guenter
