Now that I've returned from the consulting assignment in Boston, and I've left behind the Windows XP laptop on which I was attempting to develop software, life is good once again. I'm back on my beloved Solaris 10, and I have almost nothing to report regarding progress with Icarus Verilog and Free Netlist Format (FNF).

But I did say "almost" ...

"Pathetic" was a good word to use, but writing these blog items at (more or less) regular intervals forces me to face the embarrassment of limited progress caused by a limited time allocation for OpenSPARC in recent months.

Compilation of FNF using "gcc (GCC) 3.4.3 (csl-sol210-3_4-branch+sol_rpath)" was a breeze on Solaris. I regularly perform a "git pull" to merge from Steve Williams (Icarus Verilog). I'm still on OpenSPARC T1 Version 1.5. (But I see that Version 1.6 has been released, so I'll move to that immediately.) During compilation, Icarus Verilog finds the FNF generator. I haven't been this far since October.

I still owe Steve a patch that fixes DEBUG on Windows.
