This posting explains some ways to get the FAQ (Frequently Asked
Questions) of the newsgroup comp.lang.vhdl:

Besides of the monthly postings the FAQ is also available by

www at "http://www.vhdl.org/comp.lang.vhdl/" or
"http://www.eda.org/comp.lang.vhdl/" or
ftp on "vhdl.org /pub/comp.lang.vhdl/FAQ*" see VHDL
International for details on accessing the server

or send me a note to get a copy via e-mail. Further, all parts of the
FAQ are available in HTML format and PDF format (better suited for
printing).

The FAQ consists of *four* parts:

Part 1: FAQ General (contacts, etc.)
Part 2: Lists of Books on VHDL
Part 3: Lists of Products & Services (PD+commercial)
Part 4: VHDL Glossary

Part 4 is an ASCII representation of Annex B (Glossary) of the
IEEE Std 1076-1993 IEEE Standard VHDL Language Reference Manual. This
glossary contains brief, informal descriptions for a number of terms
and phrases used to define VHDL. Additionally, it includes some
examples to illustrate various definitions.

The following link points to a HTML version of the glossary using
frames

http://www.vhdl.org/comp.lang.vhdl/html3/gloss_fr.html .

A version without frames is at

http://www.vhdl.org/comp.lang.vhdl/FAQ4.html .


For a chronological list of changes made to the FAQ see below.

Bye,...
Edwin
