This is going to be a dumb question as I am an xemacs
newbie. I am trying to build a top level verilog
hierarchical design. I am currently working at the top level
using the verilog auto extensions. I am using version 21.5.
When I open up my top level file everthing seems okay
however when I try to execute the AUTOINPUT, AUTOOUTPUT,
AUTOINOUT and AUTOWIRE statements, the autos do not work
properly. I also am using the AUTOINST feature as my top
level instantiates 5 modules. Finally I am using the
AUTOTEMPLATE for all instatiations as the top level wires
require unique names that dont match my port names. of the 5
instantiations 3 of them are small and 2 are very large. I
notice error messages while the autos are executing saying
the Buffer is big for them. What happens is that the
templating doesn't follow through correctly and I get a
bunch of top level I/Os created because the templating
didn't complete right.
Guys in my office kind of shrugged and said this happens
with xemacs as it cannot handle large databases. Is this
true. I fundamentally think I have screwed up.
Any advice would be helpful. Sorry if it is a really dumb
