NAME

       DECLAR, GENPAT Package

SYNOPSYS

       DECLAR("ident",":nb_space","format",mode,size,option);

PARAMETERS

       ident     External  connector,  internal  observing  points  or  register's  name. For the
                 hierarchical descriptions, the path-name of the  internal  observing  points  or
                 registers must be specified by the syntax : instance1.instance11.name .

       nb_space  Specify  the number of blank space between each group of value associated to the
                 connectors, signals or registers in  the  output  file.  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, signals or registers. X for Hexadecimal,  O  for  Octal  and  B  for
                 Binary.

       mode      Specify  the  type  of  the  connectors. IN for Input, OUT for Output, INOUT for
                 Input/Output, SIGNAL for internal observing point, REGISTER  for  register.  IN,
                 OUT, INOUT, SIGNAL, REGISTER are constants (defines) provided by genpat.

       size      Specify the size of the bused connectors : empty ("") for the scalar connectors,
                 "nb1" for the numbered connectors, "nb1 TO nb2" or "(nb1 TO nb2)" (nb1  <  nb2),
                 "nb1  DOWNTO  nb2"  or "(nb1 DOWNTO nb2)" (nb2 < nb1) for the vectors. Where nb1
                 and nb2 are integer.

       option    Specify options of the connector. "S" for a spied connector, empty  ("")  for  a
                 normal connector.

DESCRIPTION

       Describes a set of connectors, signals or registers of the same format, size and mode.

EXAMPLE

       DECLAR("a", ":2", "X", OUT, "3 DOWNTO 0", "S");

       describes : a 3, a 2, a 1, a 0
       format    : Hexadecimal.
       mode      : Output.
       option    : Spied connector.

       the group is separated of the others with 2 blank spaces.
       result :
            out a(3 downto 0) X spy ;;;

       DECLAR ("toto", ":", "O", INOUT, "7 TO 11", "");

       describes : toto 7, toto 8, toto 9, toto 10, toto 11.
       format    : Octal.
       mode      : Input/Output.
       option    : none.

       the group is separated of the following with 0 blank space.
       result :
            inout toto(7 to 11) O ;

       DECLAR ("ck", ":2", "B", IN, "", "");

       describes : ck.
       format    : Binary.
       mode      : Input.
       option    : none.

       the port is separated of the following with 2 blank spaces.
       result :
            in ck ;;;

       DECLAR ("accu.f", ":", "B", SIGNAL, "", "S");

       describes : accu.f .
       format    : Binary.
       mode      : Signal.
       option    : Spied connector.

       the signal is separated of the following with 0 blank space.
       result :
            signal accu.f spy ;

       DECLAR ("accu.reg", ":1", "B", REGISTER, "(3)", "");

       describes : accu.reg .
       format    : Binary.
       mode      : Register.
       option    : none.

       the signal is separated of the following with 1 blank space.
       result :
            register accu.reg(3) ;;;;

WARNING

       The DECLAR function from the 4.0 release have a new parameter (option).
