Unicode characters used as identifiers in UVM Source


Recommended Posts

There is a strange occurrence of Unicode characters used in the following source file of UVM: 1800.2-2020-1.1/src/dpi/uvm_hdl_vcs.c at line 37.

#if defined(VCSMX_FAST_UVM) && !defined(MHPI_FAST_UVM)
#error “UVM_ERROR: THIS VERSION OF VCS DOESN’T SUPPORT VCSMX_FAST_UVM. Compile without -DVCSMX_FAST_UVM”
#endif

Some C compilers/GCC versions might treat the “ (U+201C, Left Double Quotation Mark) and ” (U+201D, Right Double Quotation Mark) as invalid in identifiers and thus result in a compilation error. I guess it is tied to Synopsys hence the VCS tag, but it might still need a fix in further releases.

Changing the Unicode characters to (regular) double quote (") (U+0022, Quotation Mark) fixes the errors.

Also the following comment block in the very same file contains quite sloppy syntax errors, like "Functionn" and "ceccks". If you fix the quotation marks, this would be a nice fix as well. 🙂

Kind regards,
