complex Verilog test benches easily and wholly in Ruby.

= Version 0.4 (2006-04-28)

== Summary

This release adds simple ways of reading and writing values to VPI
handles, adds documentation for the VPI utility layer, and fixes the
pipelined ALU example.

== Details

  • Simple, consistent ways of reading and writing values to handles
    have been added to the VPI utility layer. These ways are described
    in the SWIG::TYPE_p_unsigned_int class’ documentation.

  • The makefiles now use the +rbconfig+ library to determine the
    default compiler and linker flags for Ruby.

  • A race condition in the pipelined ALU example has been fixed. This
    example should now run successfully in all Verilog simulators.

  • The project wiki has been abandoned in favor of RDoc.

  • The project website is now generated by RDoc.

  • Tested and developed using:

    • Ruby 1.8.4 and Icarus Verilog 0.8 on i686 GNU/Linux
    • Ruby 1.8.4 and Mentor Modelsim 6.1d on x86_64 GNU/Linux
