Setting up ModelSim with Quartus II … how hard can it be?
Starting with the “Getting Started with Quartus II Simulation Using the ModelSim-Altera Software” get straight into trouble.
You need a “counter.zip” file that is, you guessed it, not in the distro.
Various “counter.zip” files appear an Altera site and, of course, there are about 1 billion trillion of them on the interwebby thing all up.
Seems the one needed has a “counter.qpf” inside of it … have you seen it? Hmmm?
So I went back to Altera and downloaded a raft of docco for 10.1.
I don’t know … I don’t get the feeling you get the same bang for buck this way Xilinx as you do for Altera.
In any event, I feel another laboratory report coming on.
