Installing Verilog-Perl

Installation with CPAN

If you're using a recent version of Perl on Linux, just:

cpan install Verilog::Language
# And read the documentation
# (Some OSes change the captialization; so if this doesn't work
# try man verilog-perl or man verilog-Perl.)
man Verilog-Perl

Download

Alternatively, download from CPAN/wsnyder. Then

tar xvzf Verilog-Perl*.t*gz
cd Verilog-Perl-*

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install

And see the kit's README.

Repository

Alternatively, you can get the entire development repository with:

git clone http://git.veripool.org/git/Verilog-Perl  # Only first time
cd Verilog-Perl
git pull        # Make sure we're up-to-date
git tag         # See what versions exist (recent GITs only)
#git checkout master      # Use development branch (e.g. recent bug fix)
#git checkout stable      # Use most recent release
#git checkout v{version}  # Switch to specified release version

perl Makefile.PL
# Ignore warning about README, this file will be generated
make
make test
make install

Prerequisites

Verilog-Perl should run on Linux or Windows Cygwin with Perl and a C++ complier. Note some older Linux distributions have versions of Perl that do not support C++ modules and might not install automatically with CPAN. Native Windows (not under Cygwin) is not supported.
