Bluespec is licensed using the FlexLM system. To enable the Bluespec
environment, you should have received (in a separate email) a license
file, which must be installed on the license manager host. The
util/flexlm directory contains additional instructions on installing
the license manager and license file.
The downloaded tar file should be uncompressed and unpackaged with tar into your tools directory.
The unpacking creates a directory Bluespec-yyyy.mm with the following subdirectories:
The environment variable BLUESPECDIR is required, and must be set with the correct path to the lib directory:
BLUESPECDIR = /tools/Bluespec-yyyy.mm/lib
The environment variable BLUESPEC_HOME is optional, and should be set to the install directory:
BLUESPEC_HOME = /tools/Bluespec-yyyy.mm
The $BLUESPECDIR/../bin directory must be added to the $path.
