To set up a ModelSim® project with command-line commands

  1. If you have not already done so set up the ModelSim® working environment.
  2. Start the ModelSim® software.
  3. Change to the directory where the ModelSim® libraries are located after they are compiled.
  4. To create a new work library, type the following command at the ModelSim® prompt:
    vlib work

    ModelSim® compiles the design files to library work by default.

  5. To change the default library type the following commands at the ModelSim® prompt:
    vlib< user defined library >
    vmap work<user defined library >
Note: When you run the ModelSim® software automatically from the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, your work library is automatically mapped to rtl_work for RTL simulation and gate_work for gate level simulation. The libraries are created in the <project directory>\simulation\ModelSim® directory or the location you specified in the Output directory box of the Simulation page in the Settings dialog box.
