Re: tcl/tk

In VHDL "nothing" ... :) .. TCL/TK is a scripting language ... It is genrally used to automate your runing of the environment for example ... you can write tcl scripts that can compile all your vhdl codes in modelsim rather than run all your modelsim commands every time you want to simulate . If you wish to use tcl first learn tcl , then you can probably make simple scripts

tcl is "tools command language", which change a large work to some small work, so you can use those small work to do something. Now , all eda tools supple tcl, you just need learn some simple tcl , and how to use eda tools.

Re: tcl/tk

Another book for Tcl/Tk that will help learning Tcl is the Practical programming in Tcl/Tk by Brent Welch.
See the attachment.

Re: tcl/tk

Modelsim has tcl/tk compiler built in. I managed to design a pop up GUI using a tcl/tk and Modelsim.

Re: tcl/tk

Tcl/tk may be helpful for modelsim and design compiler users. However, I think unix-shell and perl are more helpful for all engineers in programming, design, and verification etc.
