Stop ModelSim opening files.

Add this to your tcl script.

# Prevent Modeslim from opening VHDL at the end of the simulation

  • set PrefSource(OpenOnBreak) 0

Other options are:

  • PrefSource(OpenOnBreak)                = 0
  • PrefSource(OpenOnFinish)               = 1
  • PrefSource(OpenOnStep)                 = 1

In case you want to change further preferences you can:

  • See which TCL pref arrays exist using “info vars Pref*”
  • See the elements of the array e.g. “”parray PrefSource”

Or just use the GUI “tools/edit preferences”, the name tab is usually more useful.
