Before you automate, you need to be able to understand what you need at the most basic levels (manually). Interfacing with the external program and libraries can be done a variety of ways. I have seen Perl almost literally do anything, e.g., running a test harness on real flying drones during YAPC talks having the tests result in physical maneuvers. I am sure there is a video some where.

There are some results on CPAN, but I suspect not what you're wanting.

You must also provide some context about what Modelsim and and how it's normally used. There are very smart people here and they can figure it out, but you don't want them wasting time researching information you can provide.

Perl can handle it all, but unless you share how you expect to interface with Modelsim, then the amount of help you'll receive will be limited. Is Modelsim a black box that can be interacted with as an external program (via API, as an external process, output files)? Is it a collection of compiled libraries that can be interfaced using a Foreign Function Interface?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
