NAME ^

Sim - Simulator engine for discrete events

VERSION ^

This document describes Sim 0.03 released on 2 June, 2007.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Sim;

    Sim->schedule(
        0.2 => sub { print "Hi\n" },
        0.4 => sub {
            Sim->schedule(
                0.5 => sub { print "Wow!\n" },
                Sim->now + 0.2 => sub { print "Hello!\n" },
            );
        },
        0.5 => sub { print "now is ", Sim->now, "\n"; },
    );

    Sim->run( duration => 1.0 );  # upper-limit for simulation time

    # OR: Sim->run( fires => 15 );  # upper-limit for number of event fires

    print "now is ", Sim->now, "\n";  # now is 0.6

DESCRIPTION ^

Sim is a general-purpose discrete event simulator engine written in pure Perl. It was originally developed as the run-core of a sequential/conbinational logic circuit simulator named Tesla.

The Sim class is just a static class wrapping around a Sim::Dispatcher instance and a Sim::Clock instance. I used AUTOLOAD to do the magic instead of writing a lot of boring code. It's expected that using Sim::Dispatcher directly can be a bit faster but is certainly less convenient.

If you want to use a different clock model with vectorized time read, say a [sec, delta], which is found in a lot of EDA simulators, then you should use Sim::Dispatcher instead of Sim and define your clock class yourself.

See Sim::Dispatcher for more information.

STATIC METHODS ^

All the methods of Sim::Dispatcher are available for this class, but they are exposed as static methods only :)

BUGS ^

There must be some serious bugs lurking somewhere; if you find one, please consider firing off a report to http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Sim.

VERSION CONTROL ^

You can always get the latest version of the source from the following Subversion repository:

http://svn.openfoundry.org/sim/

which has anonymous access to all.

If you do want a commit bit and become a coauthor, please let me know :)

CODE COVERAGE ^

I use Devel::Cover to test the code coverage of the test suite:
