Welcome to xerlox
This site is still under construction.
xerlox ( say: zer'locks ) is both a tool and a toolbox that
brings Perl, XML, and Verilog together to create an efficient
Verilog HDL design environment.
xerlox promotes up-front documentation, efficient coding, and design reuse.
project is hosted by
Scripted generation of design directories
Includes generation of template files
Customizable directory structure template
Scripted Makefile generation for HDL and documentation
Scripted preprocessing of HDL files
Automatic I/O documentation from HDL source
Documentation can be automatically pulled from HDL source
files and embedded in an XML document
Customizable HDL and XML templates
Easy partitioning, integration, and generation of module
and project level documentation
Easy assembly of reusable HDL building blocks
Initially, xerlox will assume that cvs modules will
provide the reusable HDL building blocks.
At some point we hope to add subversion support as an alternative to cvs,
or, as a cvs replacement.
