Hi All, 

 

I'd like to run a bash script from within ModelSim Transcript window. How can I do so?  

 

Thank you!

Modelsim runs TCL. Bash would need to be handed over to the OS. tcl has an "exec" command that passes instructions to the OS.

Also, anything the TCL interpreter doesnt understand, it should pass directly to the OS.
