    From the book of Peter's The designer's guide to VHDL, I cannot tell
    the difference between attribute: XX'image and to_string. Could anyone
    explain that for me? Thanks a lot.

  2. The image attribute converts vhdl types to string equivalents.
    This is built into the language for some types.
    I expect that to_string is an example function
    that does something similar, maybe on some other type.
