Standard VHDL Language Reference Manual Amendment 1: Procedural Language Application Interface
|Publication Date:||8 March 2007|
The intent of this standard is to define VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) accurately. Its primary audiences are the implementor of tools supporting the language and the advanced user of the language. Other users are encouraged to use commercially available books, tutorials, and classes to learn the language in some detail prior to reading this standard. These resources generally focus on how to use the language, rather than how a VHDL-complaint tool is required to behave.
At the time of its publication, this doucment was the authoritive definition of VHDL. From time to time, it may become necessary to correct and/or clarify portions of this standard. Such corrections and clarifications may be published in separate documents. Such documents modify this standard at the time of their publication and remain in effect until superseded by subsequent documents or until the standard is officially revised.
