NAME

       gtkwaverc - GTKWave Configuration File

SYNTAX

       option <value>

       The  configuration file is a series of option and value pairs.  Comment
       lines marked with an initial  ’#’  character  are  permissible.   Blank
       lines are ignored.

DESCRIPTION

       Configuration   file   for   gtkwave(1).    The  search  path  for  the
       configuration file (if unspecified) is the  current  working  directory
       followed by the user’s home directory.

OPTIONS

       accel <"pathvalue" accelerator>
              This  allows  replacement  of  menu  accelerator  keys.  See the
              .gtkwaverc file in  the  source  distribution  for  examples  on
              pathvalue and accelerator syntax.  The special accelerator value
              of (null) means that no accelerator is bound to the menu item.

       alt_hier_delimeter <value>
              This allows another character in addition to the  hier_delimeter
              to  be used to delimit levels in the hierarchy for VCD. Only the
              first character in the value is significant. Note that  this  is
              normally  off. The intended use is to resolve the hierarchies of
              netlist based models  that  often  contain  slashes  to  delimit
              hierarchy inside of $var statements.

       analog_redraw_skip_count <value>
              Specifies  how many overlapping analog segments can be drawn for
              a given X position onscreen.  (Default: 20)  If there  are  gaps
              in analog traces, this value is too low.

       append_vcd_hier <value>
              Allows  the  specification  of a prefix hierarchy for VCD files.
              This can be  done  in  "pieces,"  so  that  multiple  layers  of
              hierarchy   are   prepended   to  symbol  names  with  the  most
              significant addition occurring  first  (see  .gtkwaverc  in  the
              examples/vcd directory). The intended use of this is to have the
              ability to add "project" prefixes which allow  easier  selection
              of everything from the tree hierarchy.

       atomic_vectors <value>
              Speeds  up  vcd loading and takes up less memory. This option is
              deprecated; it is currently the default.

       autocoalesce <value>
              A nonzero value  enables  autocoalescing  of  VCD  vectors  when
              applicable.  This  may be toggled dynamically during wave viewer
              usage.

       autocoalesce_reversal <value>
              causes split vectors to be reconstructed in reverse order  (only
              if autocoalesce is also active).

       autoname_bundles <value>
              A  nonzero  value  indicates  that  GTKWave  will create its own
              bundle names rather than prompting the user for them.

       color_0 <value>
              trace color when 0.

       color_1 <value>
              trace color when 1.

              brick red color for comments.

       color_dash <value>
              trace color when don’t care ("-").

       color_dashfill <value>
              trace color (inside of box) when don’t care ("-").

       color_dkblue <value>
              color value for "dark blue" in signal window.

       color_dkgray <value>
              color value for "dark gray" in signal window.

       color_gmstrd <value>
              color value for trace groupings.

       color_grid <value>
              grid color (use Alt-G/Shift-Alt-G to show/hide grid).

       color_grid2 <value>
              grid color for secondary pattern search.

       color_high <value>
              trace color when high ("H").

       color_low <value>
              trace color when low ("L").

       color_ltblue <value>
              color for shadowed traces.

       color_ltgray <value>
              color value for "light gray" in signal window.

       color_mdgray <value>
              color value for "medium gray" in signal window.

       color_mid <value>
              trace color when floating ("Z").

       color_normal <value>
              color value for "normal" GTK state in signal window.

       color_time <value>
              text color for timebar.

       color_timeb <value>
              text color for timebar’s background.

       color_trans <value>
              trace color when transitioning.

       color_u <value>
              trace color when undefined ("U").

       color_ufill <value>
              trace color (inside of box) when undefined ("U").

       color_umark <value>
              color of the unnamed (primary) marker.

       color_value <value>
              text color for vector values.

       color_vbox <value>
              vector color (horizontal).

       color_vtrans <value>
              vector color (verticals/transitions).

       color_w <value>
              trace color when weak ("W").

       color_wfill <value>
              trace color (inside of box) when weak ("W").

       color_white <value>
              color value for "white" in signal window.

       color_x <value>
              trace color when undefined ("X") (collision for VHDL).

       color_xfill <value>
              trace color (inside of box) when undefined ("X") (collision  for
              VHDL).

       constant_marker_update <value>
              A  nonzero  value indicates that the values for traces listed in
              the signal window are to be updated  constantly  when  the  left
              mouse  button  is  being  held  down rather than only when it is
              first pressed then when released (which is the default).

       context_tabposition <value>
              Use zero for tabbed viewing with named tabs at the top.  Nonzero
              places numerically indexed tabs at the left.

       convert_to_reals <value>
              Converts  all  integer  and  parameter VCD declarations to real-
              valued ones when set to a nonzero/yes value. The positive aspect
              of  this is that integers and parameters will take up less space
              in memory and will automatically display in decimal format.  The
              negative  aspect  of  this  is that integers and parameters will
              only be displayable as  decimals  and  can’t  be  bit  reversed,
              inverted, etc.

       cursor_snap <value>
              A nonzero value indicates the number of pixels the marker should
              snap to for the nearest signal transition.

       disable_empty_gui <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that if gtkwave is invoked  without  a
              dumpfile   name,   then  an  empty  gtkwave  session  is  to  be
              suppressed.  Default is a zero  value:  to  bring  up  an  empty
              session which needs a file loaded or dragged into it.

       disable_mouseover <value>
              A  nonzero  value  indicates  that  signal/value  tooltip pop up
              bubbles on mouse button presses should be disabled in the  value
              window.  A  zero  value  indicates that value tooltips should be
              active (default is disabled).

       disable_tooltips <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that tooltip pop up bubbles should  be
              disabled.  A zero value indicates that tooltips should be active
              (default).

       do_initial_zoom_fit <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that the  trace  should  initially  be
              crunched  to  fit  the  screen.  A zero value indicates that the
              initial zoom should be zero (default).

       dynamic_resizing <value>
              A nonzero  value  indicates  that  dynamic  resizing  should  be
              initially enabled (default). A zero value indicates that dynamic
              resizing should be initially disabled.

       enable_fast_exit <value>
              Allows exit without bringing up a  confirmation  requester.  The
              default is nonzero/yes.

       enable_ghost_marker <value>
              lets the user turn on/off the ghost marker during primary marker
              dragging. Default is enabled.

       enable_horiz_grid <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that when  grid  drawing  is  enabled,
              horizontal lines are to be drawn. This is the default.

       enable_vcd_autosave <value>
              causes  the  vcd  loader  to  automatically generate a .sav file
              (vcd_autosave.sav ) in the cwd if a save file is  not  specified
              on  the  command  line. Note that this mirrors the VCD $var defs
              and no  attempt  is  made  to  coalesce  split  bitvectors  back
              together.

       enable_vert_grid <value>
              A  nonzero  value  indicates  that when grid drawing is enabled,
              vertical lines are to be drawn. This is the default.  Note  that
              all    possible    combinations    of    enable_horiz_grid   and
              enable_vert_grid values are acceptable.

       fontname_logfile <value>
              When followed by an argument, this indicates the name of the X11
              font  that  you  wish  to  use  for the logfile browser. You may
              generate appropriate fontnames using the xfontsel program.

       fontname_signals <value>
              When followed by an argument, this indicates the name of the X11
              font  that  you  wish  to  use  for  signals.  You  may generate
              appropriate fontnames using the xfontsel program.

       fontname_waves <value>
              When followed by an argument, this indicates the name of the X11
              font   that  you  wish  to  use  for  waves.  You  may  generate
              appropriate fontnames using the xfontsel program. Note that  the
              signal font must be taller than the wave font or the viewer will
              complain then terminate.

       force_toolbars <value>
              When enabled, this forces everything above the signal  and  wave
              windows  to  be rendered as toolbars. This allows for them to be
              detached which allows for more  usable  wave  viewer  space.  By
              default this is off.

       hide_sst <value>
              Hides  the Signal Search Tree widget for GTK2.4 and greater such
              that it is not embedded into the  main  viewer  window.   It  is
              still reachable as an external widget through the menus.

       hier_delimeter <value>
              This  allows  characters  other  than  ’/’ to be used to delimit
              levels in the hierarchy. Only the first character in  the  value
              is significant.

       hier_grouping <value>
              For  the tree widgets, this allows the hierarchies to be grouped
              in a single place rather than spread among the netnames.

       hier_max_level <value>
              Sets the maximum  hierarchy  depth  (from  the  right  side)  to
              display  for trace names. Note that a value of zero displays the
              full hierarchy name.

       hpane_pack <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that the  horizontal  pane  should  be
              constructed  using  the  gtk_paned_pack  functions  (default and
              recommended). A zero value indicates that gtk_paned_add will  be
              used instead.

       ignore_savefile_pos <value>
              If  nonzero,  specifies that the window position attribute is to
              be ignored during savefile loading and is to be  skipped  during
              saving.  Default is that the position attribute is used.

       ignore_savefile_size <value>
              If  nonzero,  specifies  that the window size attribute is to be
              ignored during savefile loading and  is  to  be  skipped  during
              saving.  Default is that the size attribute is used.

       initial_window_x <value>
              Sets  the  size  of the initial width of the wave viewer window.
              Values less than or equal to zero will  set  the  initial  width
              equal to -1 which will let GTK determine the minimum size.

       initial_window_xpos <value>
              Sets  the  size  of  the initial x coordinate of the wave viewer
              window. -1 will let the window manager determine the position.

       initial_window_y <value>
              Sets the size of the initial height of the wave  viewer  window.
              Values  less  than  or  equal to zero will set the initial width
              equal to -1 which will let GTK determine the minimum size.

       initial_window_ypos <value>
              Sets the size of the initial y coordinate  of  the  wave  viewer
              window. -1 will let the window manager determine the position.

       left_justify_sigs <value>
              When  nonzero,  indicates  that  the  signal  window signal name
              justification should default to left, else the justification  is
              to the right (default).

       lxt_clock_compress_to_z <value>
              For  LXT  (not LXT2) allows clocks to compress to a ’z’ value so
              that regular/periodic value changes may be noted.

       page_divisor <value>
              Sets the scroll amount for page left and right operations.  (The
              buttons,  not  the hscrollbar.) Values over 1.0 are taken as 1/x
              and values equal to and  less  than  1.0  are  taken  literally.
              (i.e.,  2  gives  a  half-page  scroll  and  .67 gives 2/3). The
              default is 1.0.

       ps_maxveclen <value>
              sets the maximum number of characters that can be printed for  a
              value  in  the  signal  window portion of a postscript file (not
              including the net name itself). Legal values are  4  through  66
              (default).

       scale_to_time_dimension <value>
              The  value  can  be  any  of the characters m, u, n, f, p, or s,
              which indicates which time dimension to convert the time  values
              to.  The  default  for this is * which means that time dimension
              conversion is disabled.

       show_base_symbols <value>
              A nonzero  value  (default)  indicates  that  the  numeric  base
              symbols  for  hexadecimal  (’$’),  binary (’%’), and octal (’#’)
              should be rendered. Otherwise they will be omitted.

       show_grid <value>
              A nonzero value (default) indicates that a grid should be  drawn
              behind  the  traces.  A  zero  indicates  that no grid should be
              drawn.

       splash_disable <value>
              Turning this off enables the  splash  screen  with  the  GTKWave
              mascot when loading a trace. Default is on.

       sst_dynamic_filter <value>
              When  true  (default)  allows  the  SST  dialog signal filter to
              filter signals while keys are  being  pressed,  otherwise  enter
              must be pressed to cause the filter to go active.

       sst_expanded <value>
              When  true  allows  the  SST dialog (when not hidden) to come up
              already expanded.

       strace_repeat_count <value>
              Determines how many times that edge search  and  pattern  search
              will  iterate  on  a search.  This allows, for example, skipping
              ahead 10 clock edges instead of 1.

       use_big_fonts <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that any text rendered into  the  wave
              window  will  use fonts that are four points larger in size than
              normal. This can enhance readability.  A  zero  value  indicates
              that normal font sizes should be used.

       use_frequency_delta <value>
              allows  you  to  switch  between  the  delta  time and frequency
              display in the upper  right  corner  of  the  main  window  when
              measuring  distances  between markers.  Default behavior is that
              the delta time is displayed (off).

       use_full_precision <value>
              does not round time values when the number of  ticks  per  pixel
              onscreen  is  greater  than  10 when active. The default is that
              this feature is disabled.

       use_maxtime_display <value>
              A  nonzero  value  indicates  that  the  maximum  time  will  be
              displayed  in  the  upper right corner of the screen. Otherwise,
              the current primary (unnamed) marker  time  will  be  displayed.
              This  can be toggled at any time with the Toggle Max-Marker menu
              option.

       use_nonprop_fonts <value>
              Allows accelerated redraws of the signalwindow that can be  done
              because the font width is constant. Default is off.

       use_pango_fonts <value>
              Uses  anti-aliased  pango fonts (GTK2) rather than bitmapped X11
              ones. Default is on.

       use_roundcaps <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that vector  traces  should  be  drawn
              with  rounded  caps  rather than perpendicular ones. The default
              for this is zero.

       use_scrollbar_only <value>
              A nonzero value indicates  that  the  page,  shift,  fetch,  and
              discard  buttons  should  not be drawn (i.e., time manipulations
              should be through the scrollbar only  rather  than  front  panel
              buttons). The default for this is zero.

       use_scrollwheel_as_y <value>
              A  nonzero  value  indicates  that the scroll wheel on the mouse
              should be used to scroll the signals up  and  down  rather  than
              scrolling the time value from left to right.

       use_standard_clicking <value>
              This  option  no  longer  has  any effect in gtkwave: normal GTK
              click semantics are used in the signalwindow.

       use_toolbutton_interface <value>
              A nonzero value indicates that a toolbar with buttons should  be
              at  the  top  of  the  screen  instead  of the traditional style
              gtkwave button groups.  Default is on.

       vcd_explicit_zero_subscripts <value>
              indicates that signal  names  should  be  stored  internally  as
              name.bitnumber  when  enabled.  When  disabled,  a more "normal"
              ordering of name[bitnumber] is used. Note  that  when  disabled,
              the Bundle Up and Bundle Down options are disabled in the Signal
              Search Regexp,  Signal Search Hierarchy, and Signal Search  Tree
              options.  This  is necessary as the internal data structures for
              signals are represented with one "less" level of hierarchy  than
              when  enabled  and those functions would not work properly. This
              should not be an issue if atomic_vectors  are  enabled.  Default
              for vcd_explicit_zero_subscripts is disabled.

       vcd_preserve_glitches <value>
              indicates  that  any  repeat  equal  values  for  a net spanning
              different time values in the vcd file are not to  be  compressed
              into  a  single value change but should remain in order to allow
              glitches  to   be   present   for   this   case.   Default   for
              vcd_preserve_glitches is disabled.

       vcd_warning_filesize <value>
              produces  a  warning message if the VCD filesize is greater than
              the argument’s size in MB.  Set to zero to disable this.

       vector_padding <value>
              indicates the number of pixels of extra whitespace  that  should
              be  added  to any strings for the purpose of calculating text in
              vectors. Permissible values are 0 to 16 with the  default  being
              4.

       vlist_compression <value>
              indicates  the  value  to  pass  to zlib during vlist processing
              (which is used in the VCD recoder).   -1  disables  compression,
              0-9 correspond to the value zlib expects.  4 is default.

       vlist_prepack <value>
              indicates  that  the  VCD recoder should pre-compress data going
              into the value change vlists in order to  reduce  memory  usage.
              This is done before potential zlib packing.  Default is off.

       vlist_spill <value>
              indicates that the VCD recoder should spill all generated vlists
              to a tempfile on disk in order to reduce memory  usage.  Default
              is off.

       wave_scrolling <value>
              a nonzero value enables scrolling by dragging the marker off the
              left or right sides of the wave window. A  zero  value  disables
              it.

       zoom_base <value>
              allows  setting  of  the  zoom base with a value between 1.5 and
              10.0. Default is 2.0.

       zoom_center <value>
              a nonzero value enables center zooming, a  zero  value  disables
              it.

       zoom_dynamic <value>
              a  nonzero  value  enables  dynamic  full zooming when using the
              partial VCD (incremental) loader, a zero value disables it.

       zoom_dynamic_end <value>
              a nonzero value enables dynamic zoom to the end when  using  the
              partial VCD (incremental) loader, a zero value disables it.

       zoom_pow10_snap <value>
              corresponds to the Zoom Pow10 Snap menu option. Default for this
              is disabled (zero).
