Default Simvision, how may I make it automatically convert a VCD file into TRN?

I am used to "signalscan -auto mywave.vcd", but is there an equivalent
command in simvision?

Thank you.

You can say
simvision mywave.vcd

and it will prompt you to convert it to trn format, is that good
enough?

Thank you for your reply.

But, no, that is not good enough. My trick is "signalscan -auto
mywave.vcd -do mydo.do &"
which converts VCD automatically before executing the DO scripts.

In "simvision mywave.vcd -input mydo.sv" not only pops up a prompt, but also
executes
the scripts before the conversion is done, which is a mistake...

OK, another trick is you can create a file

..simvisionrc

in the directory where you launch simvision and put
commands in there.Perhaps you can launch your mydo.sv
file from .simvisionrc?

Unfortunately I don't think that will work either as
..simvisionrc is read at startup.

Perhaps you could use

database open mywave.vcd -overwrite

inside your script? You could pass an argument to the script of
the filename and then open it in the script. Unfortunately this
is reaching the limits of my knowledge of tcl!

regards
Alan

Couldn't you link the recordsetup/recordvars into your simulator and
generate trn files directly?

yes, can. I prefer VCD files as they are more portable...
