   [-version]

Where:

[-cmd <command file>]
   Optional. Compile using the specified compilation arguments file.
   If not specified, compilation arguments are automatically detected by scanning the current working directory for source files.
[-compile_waivers <XML file>]
   Optional. Waive compilation errors using the waivers specified in the XML file.
[-custom_report_location <directory>]
   Optional. Destination directory for the custom build report.
[-gen_custom_report <FTL file>]
   Optional, one or more. Generate a custom report using the specified template.
[-heap_size <size>]
   Optional. Set the Java heap size (syntax is <N>[g|G|m|M|k|K])
   Default is 1024m for 32 bit OSs and 3072m for 64 bit OSs
[-help]
   Print help and exit.
[-ignore_build_config_errors]
   Optional. Ignore build configuration errors.
[-lang <language>]
   Mandatory. Enable support for the specified language (e, vlog, vhdl).
[-log <log file>]
   Optional. Log to specified file.
[-print_compile_waivers_info]
   Optional. Prints how many problems each compile waiver has matched.
[-silent]
   Optional. Turn on minimal output.
[-stack_size <size>]
   Optional. Set the Java thread stack size (syntax is <N>[g|G|m|M|k|K])
   Default is 1m for 32 bit OSs and 4m for 64 bit OSs
[-version]
   Print version and exit.

Examples

Compile using the specified arguments file in mixed SystemVerilog + VHDL language:

dvt_build.sh -lang vlog -lang vhdl -cmd my_compile.args

Compile and generate a custom report using the specified template file:

dvt_build.sh -lang vlog -cmd my_compile.args -gen_custom_report template.xml.ftl

40.6.6.1 Custom Report

To generate a custom compilation report in a text-based format starting from a template use the '-gen_custom_report'. You must provide the path to a FreeMarker template file (see FreeMarker Template Language Reference). By default the custom report is generated in the current working directory. Specify a different location using '-custom_report_location'.

Inside the template file, information about the compilation results can be obtained using the API available on the ${builder} variable.

Main API

  • getAllProblems(): returns a list of all the compile problems

  • getAllWaivers(): returns a list of all the compile waivers

  • getAllFiles(): returns a list of all the compiled files in compilation order; a file may be compiled multiples times

  • getTotalCompilationTimeFormatted(): returns the total compilation time

  • getTotalCompilationTimeMilliseconds(): returns the total compilation time in milliseconds

  • getNofCompiledLines(): returns the total number of compiled lines

Problems API

  • getId()

  • getSeverity()

  • getMessage()

  • getLine()

  • getFile()

Waivers API

  • getDescription()

  • getName()

  • getSeverity()

  • getFile()

  • getLine()

  • getHitCount(): how many problems a waiver has matched

  • getMatches(): returns the waiver's "match" clauses

Match Clause API

  • getPath()

  • getMessage()

File API

  • getPath()

  • getCompileSyntax(): returns the language and language version that was used to compile a file (e.g. Verilog_2001)

  • getNofLines()

  • getCompileIndex()

  • getCompileTime()

40.6.6.1.1 Custom Report Examples

' Example 1 - XML Report Template'

<report>
<#list builder.getAllProblems() as problem>
       <problem
       id="${problem.getId()}"
       severity="${problem.getSeverity()}"
       line="${problem.getLine()}"
       message=<#if (problem.getMessage())?has_content>"${problem.getMessage()}"<#else>"''"</#if>
       file="${problem.getFile()}"
       />
</#list>
</report>

The resulting XML file will look like this:

<report>
    <problem
    id="MISSING_PORT_CONNECTION"
    severity="WARNING"
    line="5"
    message="MISSING_PORT_CONNECTION: Missing port connection to input port(s) 'bist_req_i'"
    file="mx_1/top.v"
    />
<problem
    id="IMPLICIT_LIBRARY_ACCESS"
    severity="WARNING"
    line="31"
    message="IMPLICIT_LIBRARY_ACCESS: Access to 'work' library is implicit; the library clause can be removed"
    file="mx_1/jop/ext/gaisler/srctrl.vhd"
    />
</report>
