Hi Matthias,

As Jim does, I have an error counter that I use to track errors and to generate an end-of-simulation message. I format this message so it is easy to see (and grep for). The other few lines after this message don't bother me at all.

So if I deliver a testbench to a customer I have to tell him something like: "Check the fifth to last line of the output of the simulator whether it says "0 errors occurred"." And of course I can't be sure that this is the case for all simulators out there.
