RTLBROWSE(1)                     File Viewing                     RTLBROWSE(1)



NAME
       rtlbrowse - Allows hierarchical browsing of Verilog HDL source code and
       library design files.

SYNTAX
       rtlbrowse <stemsfilename>

DESCRIPTION
       Allows hierarchical browsing of Verilog HDL source code and library
       design files.  Navigation through the hierarchy may be done by clicking
       open areas of the tree widget and clicking on the individual levels of
       hierarchy.  Inside the source code, selecting the module instantiation
       name by double clicking or selecting part of the name through drag-
       clicking will descend deeper into the RTL hierarchy.  Note that it
       performs optional source code annotation when called as a helper
       application by  gtkwave(1) and when the primary marker is set.  Source
       code annotation is not available for all supported dumpfile types.  It
       is directly available for LXT2, VZT, FST, and AET2.  For VCD, use the
       -o,--optimize option of gtkwave(1) in order to optimize the VCD file
       into FST.  All other dumpfile types (LXT, GHW) are unsupported at this
       time.

EXAMPLES
       To run this program the standard way type:

       rtlbrowse stemsfile
              The RTL is then brought up in a GTK tree viewer.  Stems must
              have been previously generated with xml2stems(1) or some other
              tool capable of generating compatible stemsfiles.  Note that
              gtkwave(1) will bring up this program as a client application
              for source code annotation.  It does that by bringing up the
              viewer with the shared memory ID of a segment of memory in the
              viewer rather than using a stems filename.
