I prefer Modelsim but I did try GHDL. It works under Windows as well, which is what I used.

Hi Kevin,

I registered an account in GitHub, and I found I missed and could not find GHDL in any version.

Could you please give me the website to download GitHub window version?

Thank you.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you very much !!!

I am not an experienced application user. Here I copied all related download file names from the website you suggested above:

ghdl-0.35-llvm-3.8-ubuntu14.tgz 14.1 MB
ghdl-0.35-llvm-macosx.tgz 12.2 MB

Hi Mike,

I am so happy to have your post:
The reason "Why not use the Windows executables" is that I don't know its existence!!!

I will immediately download it and try it. I will fully focus on using GHDL and debugging all my VHDL code, and will soon share any experiences with GHDL I will have.

It is really a happy ending for my post.

Thank you everybody for responding to my post.

Hi,

Help is needed.

I download from https://github.com/ghdl/ghdl/releases
Windows X86 (MinGW64), LLVM, 12.7MB, ghdl-0.35-mingw64-llvm.zip

I extract all files, that generates 2 bin file as application: ghdl1-llvm and ghdl. I didn't see install.exe. I clicked either of them, no application was running.

Thank you.

Did you run the executable linked from the URL in my earlier post?
http://ghdl.free.fr/ghdl-installer-0.29.1.exe

From:
Binary distributions
GHDL for Windows

Since May 2006, there is a pre-built version of windows. This is a
command-line only version, almost like the Linux version. You can
download the installer, and execute it to install GHDL.

It depends on your goals which I can only speculate about. But here are a few directions you can go based on different assumptions...

On the assumption that you installed GHDL for the purposes of running the GHDL program to process some VHDL design, I would normally suggest that you run the GHDL program. But since you seem to require step by step instructions,
- Read the documentation for how to run the GHDL program
- Explore your hard disk to see where the GHDL program has been stored
- Find the location on your hard disk where you have stored your VHDL file(s)
- Using your knowledge gained from the previous steps, run the GHDL program on your VHDL files

On the assumption that you installed GHDL for the purposes of having someone else do something, then hire someone to do the work.

On the assumption that you installed GHDL for no purpose at all I would suggest you uninstall the program to free up the disk space.

On the assumption that you installed GHDL for the purposes of filling up your disk, I would suggest you format your hard drive.

Good luck!

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

This method really helps me. Sometimes I really need people's help, this time you really give me help. There are huge information there to teach me how to start GHDL.

Of cause I will make contribution to further improve its quality and share my experiences with other people here.

Than you.

It is the latest INFORMATION of GHDL:

The current version of GHDL does not contain any graphical viewer: you cannot see signal waves.

You can still check the behavior of your design with a test bench.

Moreover, the current version can produce a GHW, VCD or FST files which can be viewed with a waveform viewer, such as GtkWave.

GHDL aims at implementing VHDL as defined by IEEE 1076. It supports the 1987, 1993 and 2002 revisions and, partially, the latest, 2008. PSL is also partially supported.

Several third party projects are supported: VUnit, OSVVM, cocotb (through the VPI interface), . . .

Now I know why GHDL is not populous, the basic reason is it has no waveform viewer!

But for a free version, it still has its values:
1. It can be used to correct all VHDL grammar errors, playing the same rule as Modelsim does.

2. It can be used to test a pre-issued product playing the same rule as Modelsim does, but it should be faster than Modelsim PE or SE.

3. At least it provides files to communicate with third party software to view the waveform.

I will be comfortable with this method: As an experienced VHDL designer, I spent most of time running Modelsim until an error showed up. The speed is very important factor to get all bugs discovered.
