    Hi all,
    I need to use floating point datatypes in my project. fphdl(by David
    Bishop) seems very promising to me.
    I am using ModelSim5.7-XE(XILINX EDITION).

    1) Is VHDL200x is a new library? if yes, is it available with Vendors?

    2) I have downloaded the zip files available at

    DO i need to compile all files in this ZIP folder ?

    Thanks in advance

  2. Some vendors. Download trial software and see.
    See also:
    You only *need* to compile the files containing
    the function you are interested it.

    Vendors precompile everything for supported libraries.

    See the user guides that you downloaded with the files.
    If you did not get user guides, download the latest version.

    I did a paper recently at a conference on these types and it
    includes some hints for library creation and compiling the
    files. You can find the paper at:
