Original Assignee: Wilson Snyder (@wsnyder)

I am having trouble getting the --skiplist option to work with vhier.

I've attached a simple testcase to show the issue.

Below is the output when running the testcase (just type 'make'). The debug output shows that 'block_c' was recognized as part of the skiplist, but it is not skipped when reading the design.

Please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.


$ make
vhier --debug --skiplist skiplist -F top/file.f --top-module top --input-files
Debug: skiplist:
    Reading top/../block_a/
    Reading top/../block_b/
    Reading top/
    Reading top/
%Error: top/ Cannot find block_c
%Error: top/ Module/Program/Interface reference not found: block_c
Exiting due to errors
make: *** [Makefile:2: all] Error 10

Thanks for the very good example.

--skiplist skips printing a module name, it doesn't affect parsing.

Use --no-missing to suppress the complaints about missing modules.
