After I write my VHDL code in Quartus and compiled it, I want to verify the proper operation of my code and create .vwf simulation file. How can I simulate and create .vwf file from modelsim?...please help

Thanks

.vwf is a Quartus specific file format. Modelsim doesn't use it.

To simulate and verify proper operation of your code, one would typically write a testbench which is simply additional VHDL code that
1. Models the inputs to your design and
2. Monitors the outputs of the design and verifies that they are correct.

If you only want to do #1, then you can still manually verify that the waveforms looks correct in Modelsim.

Thanks Kevin. But if I want to simulate and create .vwf and wlf simulation files, which tool must be use instead of using modelsim to achieve that?
