sorry, should be VHDL.
Clearly did not know what the acronym meant.
I looked it up at Wikipedia :
"VHDL,(VHSIC Hardware Description Language)."
"VHSIC (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit) was a 1980s U.S. government
"VHDL borrows heavily from the Ada programming language in both concepts
"The designers of Verilog wanted a language with syntax similar to the C
programming language [..]"
Anyone has an idea why Wirth choose Verilog instead of VHDL?
