"no matching function for call to ...b_transport" in ModelSim 10.4a

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm trying to compile a design with a TLM2 socket (simple_initiator_socket) in ModelSim (sccom). So far, the compiler returns an error saying that there is no function called b_transport.

 

Yet I have this same design working in the PoC SC simulator, so I'm guessing that ModelSim is doing things differently than the PoC.

 

However ModelSim does point out an alternative, which was to use blocking_transport_if's version. I believe this was the one used all along in the PoC, and it should be the same in ModelSim.

 

Any ideas?

 

Here are the designs:

 

Initiator

/**
 * RTL-to-TLM2 Adaptor
 */
...

/** Includes **/
...
#include <tlm.h>
#include <tlm_utils/simple_initiator_socket.h>

  ...

                                              cmd(tlm::TLM_IGNORE_COMMAND)

	  // Initiator obliged to check response status and delay
	  if (trans->is_response_error())
	    SC_REPORT_ERROR("TLM-2", "Response error from b_transport");

The only thing that looks weird to me is that you're calling b_transport with an argument sc_time(SC_ZERO_TIME). What happens if you call it with just SC_ZERO_TIME?

 

The error message seems to be saying it's looking for a function prototype that takes an argument passed by value rather than by reference, so perhaps calling the copy constructor explicity is confusing something?

My bad, seems to me like I should have used a proper variable rather than calling it directly like I did.

 

I declared an sc_time var called delay and initialised it to SC_ZERO_TIME and used that in the b_transport call. That did the job.

 

Btw to answer your question, it didn't solve the problem.
