    This posting explains some ways to get the FAQ (Frequently Asked
    Questions) of the newsgroup comp.lang.vhdl:

    Besides of the monthly postings the FAQ is also available by

    www at "http://www.vhdl.org/comp.lang.vhdl/" or
    "http://www.eda.org/comp.lang.vhdl/" or
    ftp on "vhdl.org /pub/comp.lang.vhdl/FAQ*" see VHDL
    International for details on accessing the server

    or send me a note to get a copy via e-mail. Further, all parts of the
    FAQ are available in HTML format and PDF format (better suited for

    The FAQ consists of *four* parts:

    Part 1: FAQ General (contacts, etc.)
    Part 2: Lists of Books on VHDL
    Part 3: Lists of Products & Services (PD+commercial)
    Part 4: VHDL Glossary

    Part 4 is an ASCII representation of Annex B (Glossary) of the
    IEEE Std 1076-1993 IEEE Standard VHDL Language Reference Manual. This
    glossary contains brief, informal descriptions for a number of terms
    and phrases used to define VHDL. Additionally, it includes some
    examples to illustrate various definitions.

    The following link points to a HTML version of the glossary using

    DragonFly core

    Hello, every body!
    Does anyone have last or latest DragonFly core and documenation?
    Leox.Org doesn't provide those files anymore :(

    Thank you.
