    Hi,
    I was wandering, is there a way to maintain a firmware version
    automatically ?
    Say I've a firmware register in my design, is there a way to incement
    it each time the code is being compiled in the quartus ?

    Hi guru,
    I am using xilinx ise and the only way I know is to run the build
    process in batch mode. I don't know, but it should be possible for
    quartus.
    The batch can read the version from file, increment it and build the
    project. But for sure it is not as simple as pushing a radio-button.

    cheers,
    Wolfgang Kopp

    thanks,
    I'm not looking for a simple way. I'm looking for an automatic way, so
    hopfully this will work fine.
    thanks a lot

    Do you use a revision control system?

    Assign a VHDL constant a value that is generated
    by your version control system. This way it will
    be automatically updated.

    Cheers,
    Jim
