fmi(1) FSM state miminization


fmi [-V] input_file output_file


Made to run on FSM descriptions, fmi supports the same subset of VHDL as syf (for further informations about this subset see SYF(1) and FSM(5)). fmi uses a Reduced Ordered Binary Decision Diagrams representation and identifies equivalent states. After this step, it drives a new FSM where all equivalent states are replaced by a single state.
As a restriction fmi doesn't handle don't cares (as this much more difficult).


        MBK_WORK_LIB gives the path of the FSM description.
The default value is the current directory.

        MBK_CATA_LIB gives some auxiliary pathes for the FSM descriptions.
The default value is the current directory.


        -V Sets verbose mode on. Each step of the minimization is displayed on the standard output.
