    reset = 1;
    clock = 1;
    sc_start(1, SC_NS);

    sc_close_vcd_trace_file(wf);
    return 0;
}

This is my code for a simple mux. I am not able to bind the vector of out with output signal vector. Both the methods dont seem to work. any suggstions?

      bind.out(output);
      
       sc_assemble_vector( mux, &sub_module::out ).bind( output );

You would do it like this:

int sc_main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
    // Ports 
    sc_signal <bool> reset;
    sc_signal <bool> clock;
    sc_signal<sc_uint<8> > input;
    sc_vector<sc_signal<sc_uint<8>>> output;
    //instance and port binding
    mux bind("mux");

    bind.reset(reset);
    bind.clk(clock);
    bind.in(input);
    bind.out(output);
    // Open VCD file
    sc_trace_file *wf = sc_create_vcd_trace_file("mux");
    ...
    ...

But you cannot call sc_start before opening the VCD database. sc_start initializes the VCD output so you cannot add things to trace.

When you write 'Both the methods dont seem to work' what is the problem you are seeing?

Warning: (W807) sc_vector::bind called with empty range: target `mux.vector_0' (sc_vector) not initialised yet
In file: ../../../../src/sysc/utils/sc_vector.cpp:140

Error: (E109) complete binding failed: port not bound: port 'mux.port_2' (sc_in)

Thank you for your help. I tried binding it like you suggested and recieved the above error and a warning.
 

int sc_main(int argc, char* argv[]) {


// Ports

 

sc_signal <bool> reset;

sc_signal <bool> clock;

sc_signal<sc_uint<8> > input;

sc_vector<sc_signal<sc_uint<8>>> output;

//sc_signal<sc_uint<8>> output[8];

//instance and port binding

mux bind("mux");

 

bind.reset(reset);

bind.clk(clock);

bind.in(input);

bind.out(output);

// Open VCD file

sc_trace_file *wf = sc_create_vcd_trace_file("mux");

from the documentations, i tried two ways to bind, which I have mentioned.

As the error message says: you forgot to bind a port. Since the are no names given (which I always suggest to do) it is a generated name. Moreover the sc_vector is not initialized to a certain size.

So for your module do (C++11 assumed) it should look like:

// Module defintion 
SC_MODULE (mux) {

    //inputs
    sc_in<bool> clk{"clk"};
    sc_in<bool> reset{"reset"};
    sc_in<bool> enable{"enable"};
    sc_in<sc_uint<8> > in{"in"};

    //output ports
    sc_vector<sc_out<sc_uint<8> > > out{"out", 8};

and sc_main should look like

int sc_main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
    // Ports 
    sc_signal <bool> reset{"reset"};
    sc_signal <bool> clock{"clock"};
    sc_signal <bool> enable{"enable"};
    sc_signal<sc_uint<8> > input{"input"};
    sc_vector<sc_signal<sc_uint<8>>> output{"output", 8};
    //instance and port binding
    mux bind("mux");

    bind.reset(reset);
    bind.clk(clock);
    bind.enable(enable);
    bind.in(input);
    bind.out(output);
    // Open VCD file
    sc_trace_file *wf = sc_create_vcd_trace_file("mux");
    ...
    ...
