By default, a platform port attribute is a string name used to construct an attribute of type FileIO. The string specifies the name of an input or output file relative to the current directory that will source or sink the platform data. The explicit form is specified in the following example using a FileIO constructor.

FileIO *in = new FileIO(“input.txt”);
FileIO *out = new FileIO(“output.txt”);
simulation::platform<1,1> platform(in,out);

FileIO ports are solely for the purpose of application simulation in the absence of an actual hardware platform. They are provided as a matter of convenience to test out a data flow graph in isolation before it is connected to a real platform. An actual hardware platform exports either stream or memory ports.
