Starting from version 12.1, the SimVision Watch Window accommodates Specman watch items together with HDL watch items. Now you can use the same window to inspect all your watches.
Hyperlink support in the SimVision Watch Window is still on its way, so right now Specview is the default for Specman watches. Nevertheless, you are invited to try out the new feature and voice your opinion.
To choose which watch window should display Specman watches, use the newly introduced "-use_watch_window" configuration option belonging to the "debug" category:
config debug -use_watch_window=window
The ‘window' parameter can have the following (self-explanatory) values:
You can change the configuration "on the fly". Your watch items will be moved to the appropriate window (or copied if you choose both).
You can also change the configuration while still in batch mode. It will take effect whenever you connect to the GUI.
