gnucap-custom provides a basis for gnucap customisations including stuff and
work in progress that I find useful.
== gnucap-custom (the binary)
an executable allowing for easy customisation. This replaces the
upstream gnucap executable in some situations.
options are (some are subject to plugins)
-v file.v # process verilog file
-DXXX, -UXXX # "`define XXX", "`undef XXX"
-I/path/to/stuff # append to `include path
== 'gncp'. out of the box example
this is just a symlink to gnucap-custom, and a corresponding rc.
it has all available features enabled.
- readline persistent history
- make transitive relative includes work
- GNUCAP_INCLUDEPATH environment controls `include
- (partial) verilog preprocessing, `if(n)def etc.
- load .cc files directly (compile on demand).
most functionality is provided as plugins, and extends libgnucap. It can be
used from whichever gnucap program, e.g.
$ gnucap -a custom/c_include.so # provides `include command
$ gnucap -a custom/tab_completion.so # enables tab_completion
$ gnucap -a custom/c_cmk.so # node ordering
$ gnucap -a custom/c_make_attach.so # build and load plugins in 1 go
== creating custom executables
gnucap loads $sysconfdir/basename(argv).rc upon startup. it takes
GNUCAP_SYSCONFDIR (if specified) from the environment as an override for
now its possible to have local custom installations.
$ export GNUCAP_SYSCONFDIR=$HOME/.gnucap:/etc # put in ~/.profile?
$ echo stuff > $HOME/.gnucap/foocap.rc # configure something
$ ln -s /usr/bin/gnucap $HOME/.bin/foocap # or wherever it is.
$ foocap # reads stuff
you need to install gnucap-custom (the binary) so this works without
additional environment tweaks (recommended).
see INSTALL for instructions
- -b is still missing (and other slight deviations)
- per directory rc
- undef-all/reset command (hook into clear)
- verilog `constant expansion
- exit codes (fix exception handling)
- not sure if verilog has `if 0/1
- requires patched lang_verilog
- preprocessor conditionals must be aligned to scopes.
- tab_completion: needs work.
