You can do one of two things.
You can use -uvm as a command line option and it will automatically compile the UVM library located in the Cadence installation. This will include our TCL commands for debug, allows you to use our uvm-specific debug features, transaction recording and a few other things.
Optionally, you can set an environment variable, for example UVM_HOME, to the location of another installation of UVM and then use -uvmhome $UVM_HOME.
In both cases, you do not need to specify the files on the command-line.
