    Hi VHDL GNU men,

    Amontec is interested to build an auto-documentation of our VHDL
    libraries, cell-by-cell.

    The documentation will stay basic, like :
    general description
    port description
    generic description
    implementation description
    license description
    note description

    The goal is to do a interface documentation for the end-user.

    Now, we know the power of XML for this kind of documentation.
    The advantage of XML is the structural view like VHDL. Having a VHDL
    library documented in a XML format, we will be able to describe the
    hardware of a SoC very quickly, and to ask XML to re-generate a VHDL
    concatenated file of our XML description ... oopps)

    The start-point will becomes the end-point (VHDL bottom-up design to XML
    up-down design)

    I will be interested if some VHDL men have a VHDL to XML parser,
    thinking documentation only.

    Or is that better to do a parser to correct my VHDL libraries inserting
    directly the XML format in the vhdl comment.

    Let me know if some are interested to work with Amontec on this JOB.
