DVT VHDL IDE User Guide
Rev. 20.1.6, 2 April 2020
Aliases only work in interactive shells. The command specified in the Run Configuration should be:
<your_shell> -ic "<your_alias>"
bash -ic "ll"
When you create a new DVT Generic Run Configuration, DVT tries to guess the shell that you use from the $SHELL system variable and fills it in for you.
