vpiParameter support is incomplete, vpiParameters which
are not "string" types are simply not passed to vvp.
I have created an example patch against 0.8.1 which
"fixes" this. I have not yet ported this to the cvs
branch due to unrelated assertion failures in that area
which break my environment.
This patch provides vpiStringVal support for fetching
parameters at runtime. Other format types are NOT
supported and would require a more invasive set of edits.
vpiParameters may now be fetched either by scan/iterate
and/or vpi_get_handle_by_name direct reference. They
also appear as you would expect with the "list" command
