In the working process for my private project, I use free Notepad++ to code
VHDL code and appreciate it very much!
Here is an example of how powerful Notepad++ is:
In 27 files, I easily found that I use the statement "when others => nul
l; " 119 times and the statement "end case;" 117 times. There are certainly
2 mismatches for the 2 types of statements. I found only 1 mismatch in whi
ch "end case;" is written as "end if;" by looking at every statement "when
others => null; ", and abandoned another attempt to find the only mismat
ch. I don't have to switch files to locate the statement; instead, I just c
licked a search result file shown in different colors.
I would like to share this experience with everyone here.
