Agenda:

Old ISAC IR Review

  • Review Cliff W findings on
    • Are port clauses ordered (like generics)?
  data_real : in sfixed;
  data_imag : in data_real'subtype;

Paragraph 6.5.6.1 allows ordering for generic lists, but not port and parameter lists. Will require a language change. Cliff indicated that it is not a huge impact on compilers.

    • IR 2063 - FT Item 14 - Looks like was addressed.
    • IR 2054 & 2063 keep open.
    • IR 2110 - Done. Implicit type coversions
