RC5 - compile sort of broken
« on: November 07, 2014, 04:36:18 pm »
I don't know when this cropped up, but I first encountered it in RC3, then updated to RC5 and it's still there.

Either click the "compile" tool on the tool bar, or 'shift-F10' to compile the current buffer, and a dialog pops up: "There is no language specific command for SystemVerilog". I have the compile tool command defined in the project settings : vlog -novopt -f vlog.opt -sv "%p%n%e"
Which has been working for eternity.
In the build window I get this message once: Warning: no access to tty (Bad file descriptor). Thus no job control in this shell."
If I manually enter the compile command in the build tool (filling in the file name), it works fine.

It appears that this is because the project in which the file resides does not have a build command defined. This is deliberate (the project is the source for a pre-compiled library so tagging can find the functions etc), and while I don't specifically recall compiling any of these files, I don't think it has has caused a problem before.

Could you post the project file (.vpj) for this?  No source needed, just the project file. I will take a look at it and see what is going.

I've attached the project files for both the project I'm working in (pixelPreprocessor.vpj), and the library project (alteraVerification.vpj).
