If I save the waveform, it is saved as a .do file in ModelSim/QuestaSim. This does not help as later I will have to run the simulation to get the wave back anyway!
What I am looking for is means by which all the wave (their data at points in time) is saved in a single file like an EVCD file. Later I can just open this file even when I have absolutely nothing from the design itself and be able to pan and zoom in/out on the wave. I find nothing in ModelSim that can be used to do this. Saving the waveform as an image takes away a lot of important features, this is what I do at present but want to know how to save the wave itself for later use in the wave editor???
