Ways to get the FAQ of comp.lang.vhdl

Discussion in 'VHDL' started by Edwin Naroska, Aug 29, 2003.

  1. Posted-By: auto-faq 3.3 (Perl 5.008)



    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
    printing).

    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
    frames

    http://www.vhdl.org/comp.lang.vhdl/html3/gloss_fr.html .

    A version without frames is at

    http://www.vhdl.org/comp.lang.vhdl/FAQ4.html .


    For a chronological list of changes made to the FAQ see below.

    Bye,...
