Attendees:

* Brent Hayhoe, FarrellOstler, RobGaddi, RyanHinton, JimLewis, PeterFlake

Agenda:

Meeting Discussion

  • Block Interfaces
    • Lots of discussion on reflector from John Aasen and Ernst C.
  • Arbitrary Length Integers
    • UNIVERSAL_INTEGER = BigNum
    • Rob cited example where used 80 bits and is worried about increasing over time.
    • Ryan: BigNum always unconstrained. For synthesis, we need constrained integers.
    • Base type: BigNum. Integer is a 32-bit constrained subtype.
    • Allow UNIVERSAL_INTEGER as a function parameter, but otherwise usage must be constrained
    • If usage of BigNum slowed integer performance to 1/3 of what it is now, is that significant?
    • AI: Ryan to add integers as 32 bit constrained subtype of UNIVERSAL_INTEGER
  • Reviewed FILE_IO Proposal
    • Edited during meeting.
    • Copy items from TranscriptPkg into the textIO package?
