GHDL is a VHDL simulator, using the GCC technology (http://ghdl.free.fr/).
Did somebody tried to build it on cygwin. I had a lot of problems.
Yes, and yes, me too. I also reported to the maintainer that it is not
possible to bootstrap GHDL and Ada at the same time, it seems not to be
changed, maybe the package needs a new maintainer?
From a technical point of view, GHDL is a GCC front-end: it compiles VHDL
files into objects files, like GCC does for C, C++, Fortran or Ada95 files.
GHDL does not generate intermediate C files.
GHDL is written in Ada95. I use the GNAT compiler (the GCC Ada compiler) to
create the binary image. The GHDL source includes AGCC, an Ada binding for
interfacing with GCC.
The GHDL run-time library is written in Ada95 too. It uses some of the Ada95
and GNAT packages.
Where can I get the right GNAT and GCC for cygwin.
The GCC is complete since version 3.3.1 was released for Cygwin, just
install the package gcc-ada with setup.exe.
Please keep me posted,
