    Hey all,

    I had a technical writing course this last semester where I had to create a technical manual of some sort. I've been a teaching assistant for an advanced digital design class as well, so I decided to make a quick reference VHDL manual.

    It's not really for beginners, but for those who are at least somewhat familiar with VHDL and FPGA synthesis.

    Anywho, it's free, so if you want it, you can download it by clicking the attachment on this post.

    Let me know if you find it helpful or have any comments on improving it!

    I like the "social-camouflage". That way when my girl sees me reading it, she has no idea it a techie book. She thinks Im reading a cute pink book about playing cards.

    SCORE.

    Thanks.

    Ha ha, I had some people tell me they hated the pink, but it was easier on my eyes than plain white.

    I will move this over to the Programmers section and make it sticky.

    If it helps, the Foxit reader app works with it.

    Late wakeup of this thread, but there are two solutions:
    Use okular or clean up the file using either ghostscript or pdftk.

    pdftk quickManualVHDL.pdf cat 1-end output quickManualVHDL-new.pdf
