P1076 February 4, 2016 Meeting Minutes


  • Brent Hayhoe, Jim Lewis, Patrick Lehmann, Kevin Cameron


Meeting Discussion

  • Review Interface Proposals
  • What's Next - see PrivateDocuments file: _summary_vhdl_requirements_priority.xlsx
    • Resuming at line 15
    • Composites of Protected Types
      • Needed for indexed data structures, like arrays of scoreboards
      • Will need constraint that a composite of a protected type may only include a protected type
    • Report Calling Path of Subprogram
      • Needed for Error reporting
    • Anonymous Types on Subprogram calls
      • ?? Complexity
      • A compromise might be to allow generics to be mapped on a subprogram call
      • Mapping generics on usage is something that is desirable to do for packages and types (assuming that we add generics to types - such as protected types)
    • Protected Types and Aliases
      • Support aliases to methods of protected types.
      • Purpose: Allow protected type method names to be changed (for consistency among utilities), while maintaining backward compatibility.
    • Attributes for Enums
      • 'Length and 'Range seem to be obvious
      • 'Serialize seems to be a conversion on top of 'pos
        • Hard to write a one parameter function to do this. Would need either a generic type or anonymous type and a way to designate that doing 'pos on the type is allowed (ie: the type is a scalar).
        • Easy to do with a two parameter function to do this, however, the call is longer
  • Review Integer Proposals
