SHMIDCAT(1)		   Shared Memory Trampoline		   SHMIDCAT(1)

NAME
       shmidcat	- Copies stdin/file to a shared	memory block for gtkwave(1)

SYNTAX
       shmidcat	[VCDFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Copies  either  the  file specified at the command line or stdin	(if no
       file specified) line by line to a shared	 memory	 block.	  stdout  will
       contain a shared	memory ID which	should be passed on to gtkwave(1).

EXAMPLES
       To run this program the standard	way type:

       cat whatever.vcd	| shmidcat
	      The shared memory	ID is emitted to stdout.

       shmidcat	whatever.vcd | gtkwave -v -I whatever.sav
	      GTKWave directly grabs the ID from stdin.

LIMITATIONS
       This program is mainly for illustrative and testing purposes only.  Its
       primary use is for people who wish to write interactive VCD dumpers for
       gtkwave(1)  as  its  source  code  may  be  examined,  particularly the
       emit_string() function.	It can also be used to test if an existing VCD
       file  will load properly	in interactive mode.  Note that	it can also be
       used to redirect	VCD files which	are written into a pipe	to  gtkwave(1)
       in a non-blocking fashion.
