How to disable MULTITOP?

Added by Ignatius Rivaldi over 1 year ago

I'm using Verilator as a linter (actually its this plugin: as the other verilog linter plugin that is based on icarus verilog failed to work for some reason. Every time I edit a Verilog library file, my linter plugin shows MULTITOP error, which is not really an error, because I'm editing a library file not a testbench file, and it is annoying and spams Atom with a lot of 'errors'. For code organization, I don't want to make each module in a separate file, and because this is a editor linter, I can't just pass a -v into verilator. Is there a way to stop this message and/or to declare this file as a library inside the code itself, like verilator lint_off?

You can specify a --top-module option and it won't lint the other modules. But I think what you really want is some set of flags that will work to lint any file? I can look at adding an option to wrap multiple top modules, but it will only make sense for linting.

Note the code in git and next version 4.018 will allow multiple top files - see the documentation.
