|ident||Name, followed with a number if part of a bused signal, of a connector, a signal or a register. All idents must be of the same type. The name and the number must be separated by a blank or the number must be parenthesized.|
|nb_space||Specify the number of blank space between each group of value. 0,1,2,3,4,5,6, 7,8,9 or nothing.|
|format||Specify the format that will be used to represent the value associated to the connectors. X for Hexadecimal, O for Octal and B for Binary.|
|type||Specify the type of the aggregate. REGISTER for Register, SIGNAL for Signal, OUT for Output, IN for Input, INOUT for Input/Output. REGISTER, SIGNAL, OUT, IN, INOUT are constants (defines) provided by genpat.|
|option||Specify options of the connectors. "S" for a spied connector, empty ("") for a normal connector.|
Specify the arrays name, the first ident is associated with the MSB of the
Create a virtual vector with signals of the same type and format. The signals may be either Inputs, Outputs, Inputs/Outputs, Registers or Internal Signals. A vector to be aggregate is to be declared bit per bit (it will appear as a vector in the output file). Outputs, Signals and Registers can be redeclared in a virtual vector. Inputs and Inputs/Outputs CANNOT be redeclared.
ARRAY ("cout", "s 9", "s 8", "s 7", ":2", "B", OUT, "S", "Y", 0);
format : Binary. type : Output connector. option : spied connector.
each group is separated of the others with 2 blank spaces. result : out Y ( cout, s (9 downto 7) ) B spy ;;;
ARRAY ("regt", "reg 9", ":2", "B", REGISTER, "", "Y", 0);
format : Binary. type : Register. option : none.
each group is separated of the others with 2 blank spaces. result : register Y ( regt, reg (9 downto 9) ) B;;;
The ARRAY function from the 4.0 release have a new parameter (option).
You are dealing with a variable number of parameters fonction. If you forget one or more parameter, you will have one of the following results :
Nothing bad happen, but your result file is erroneous.
You are asked for more parameter.
You crash the program and produce a Segmentation Fault.
In all cases, check your C file for missing parameter.
