NAME

       xml2stems - Verilator XML to rtlbrowse stems conversion.

SYNTAX

       xml2stems [option]... INFILE [OUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION

       Converts  Verilator XML AST representation to stems file for use with rtlbrowse.  Intended
       to replace the obsolete vermin, and in the future, advanced tool features may possibly use
       additional  data provided by the Verilator AST.  Using "-" as an input filename reads from
       stdin.  Omitting the output filename outputs to stdout.

OPTIONS

       -V,--vl_sim
              Adds TOP hierarchy for Verilator sim.  Not necessary for other simulators.

       -h,--help
              Display help then exit.

EXAMPLES

       The following is a chain of commands to compile Verilog source and then bring  up  gtkwave
       and  rtlbrowse  together  for  source  code annotation.  This assumes the file des.fst was
       already generated from a prior simulation.

       verilator -Wno-fatal des.v -xml-only --bbox-sys

       xml2stems obj_dir/Vdes.xml des.stems

       gtkwave -t des.stems des.fst
