This is typically used in osx to run gtkwave gtkwave tutorial if it was compiled gtkwave tutorial and placed in an.
Note that if the environment variable gtkwave_ chdir is defined, the argument is a dummy argument. This is to support osx in that the open command has difficulty in passing spaces as command line arguments and it is possible for pwd ( 1) to return spaces. Enter ' 1' or ' 2' depending on which version of gtkwave you would like to compile against. Typically, you will enter ' 2' ( or just press enter).
