  • Jim is continuing work on coverage modeling improvements
  • How to get more people to participate in the WG meetings?
    • Post to c.lang.vhdl
    • DATE?

Open ISAC ISSUES / Language Requests

  • Determine bounds of the target array from within a function call
  • Overloading assignment
  • Forcing Outputs
  • IR2131: Vhpi_user.h requires enum types contents update/completion
    • Jerry to contact OP to determine if it was addressed in VHDL-2008
  • IR2130: Ability to overload the assignment operator := would be useful
    • Is a language request, forward to VASG<
    • Peter: Potentially dangerous within a strongly typed, overloaded language. Jim agrees
    • David: could be used in context of fixed and floating point array packages to enforce array bounds to match in index value rather than match in just length.
      • Alternately consider David's concern as a separate issue since it goes in a more restrictive direction
  • IR2132: Method to allow functions that return arrays to have knowledge of the array bounds
    • Is a language request, forward to VASG

Action Items:

  • Review Bugzilla List and select candidate issues for discussion at the next meeting

Next Meeting Date (proposed):

Thursday March 15, 8 am Pacific
