How to Enable Vi or Emacs Editor Emulation in the DVT IDE


If you are familiar with vi or emacs, you can use your shortcuts in the DVT IDE by switching the editor emulation mode.

Design and Verification Tools (DVT) is an integrated development environment (IDE) for the e language, SystemVerilog, Verilog, and VHDL. It helps design and verification engineers increase the speed and quality of code development and simplify the maintenance of reusable libraries and legacy code.

DVT is built on the Eclipse Platform and is similar to well-known programming tools like Visual Studio and IntelliJ. It comprises an IEEE standard-compliant parser, a smart code editor, an intuitive GUI, and a comprehensive set of features that help with code inspection, navigation, documentation, and debugging. It integrates with all major simulators, revision control systems, and bug tracking engines and provide support for building UVM-compliant verification environments.
