If you are using VCS as the Verilog simulation software, the command named
"vpd2vcd" can translate .vpd file into .vcd file. VCS generates a .vpd file
for the waveform of the simulated Verilog sources.

VCD file is in text formating:
2. $scope module xxxx_name $end
$var wire 1 3! TDO $end
3. $enddefinitions $end
And, you can use the attached C code to read the VCD file.
