This bug is twofold. On one hand, the current configuration of the

ModelSim compiler is not able to parse and highlight the Warnings as

warnings when using vhdl-compile, they are listed as errors. With GHDL

on the other hand, the *compile* buffer differentiates between

warnings and errors when highlighting. I can't reproduce this at home

since I don't have a ModelSim license there, but you can see the effect

in a screenshot from the bugfix that introduced this:




I have tried looking into modifying the regexp but for the life of me I

couldn't figure out how compile.el differentiates between warnings and



Now the second problem is that I believe the way bug#5768 was fixed is

actually not compatible with ModelSim, but with ModelSim-Intel (formerly

Altera). As the link above shows, the warnings are formatted as follows:


** Warning: [3] counter_rtl.vhd(18): (vcom-1246) Range 5 downto 6 is null.


My ModelSim actually formats its Warnings differently, for example:


** Warning: (vcom-1246) counter_rtl.vhd(18): Range 5 downto 6 is null.


You can look into the ModelSim documentation under the "Message Format"

Section. I am not 100% certain if the number in brackets could also

appear in my Installation but possibly the number is just optional. The

regexp could be modified to allow both, this would avoid introducing a

separate Modelsim-Intel compiler.


I can verify any fixes at work.

Thanks, I installed this on the emacs-29 branch, and I'm closing this
