Re: [vhdl-200x] Standardize GHW format?

Hi all,
I was thinking it may be a good idea to standardize the GHW format that is
now being used by GHDL (VHDL simulator) and the GTKWave waveform viewer.

Verilog has standardized the VCD waveform format, but some VHDL types can't
be exported to that format since it's mainly Verilog-specific.
This was the reason why GHDL chose to define a new waveform format.

More information on GHW is here:

Of course, we can study this new format and see whether we would like it
standardized, or we'd rather define a new format.

Just my 2 cents.

regards, dan
