How to Use the VPI Routines

  • Stuart Sutherland


This chapter introduces the VPI portion of the PLI standard, and shows how to use the VPI routines to access information within a simulation data structure. Two complete PLI applications, $show_all_nets and $show_all_signals,will be created in this chapter to illustrate how the VPI routines work. The remaining chapters in this part of the book then build on the principles presented in this chapter by explaining the VPI library in much more detail.
