VHDL is a "hardware description language." The easiest way to use it on Code Ocean is to use GHDL, an "open-source simulator" that "allows you to compile and execute your VHDL code". GHDL is available on GitHub.
- Using apt-get, install
zlib1g-dev. Note that some of these may be pre-installed.
- Use the setup script to run the following code:
curl -L https://github.com/tgingold/ghdl/releases/download/v0.34/ghdl-v0.34-mcode-ubuntu.tgz | tar xz -C ghdl
The GHDL executable will then be located in
/ghdl/bin/ghdl during runtime.
