Test module didn't work correctly

I'm currently using;
- Debian 4.0r0 GNU/Linux
- Icarus Verilog version 0.8

The test module didn't work correctly. After I changed following line;
reg clk;
reg clk = 0;
it's finally work.

Icarus is a fantastic tool. It substitutes
for a $100,000 per seat tool from others.
It does not have limits like other demos,
its a full simulator. Supports $dumpfile
so you can generate waveforms. Runs on
Win95 even. Highly reliable.

Just in case you are tempted. Do NOT try www.icarus.org in your browser. It is some nasty- non-work-safe low rate porn. Arghhhh.
Make sure you use the link:

Once I have this installed on my machine, I will run an artical following up on my site.

Its been some time, and I found this old posting of my mine through a google links search.

Icarus verilog is now probably included with your linux dist somewhere- most definately with gentoo. It is pretty useful - and I have been learning a great deal about using verilog and VHDL languages to program robots - or more specifically create purpose built logic platforms as opposed to using microcontrollers.

Now what is needed for linux is a good integrated EDA suite - so I would advise Electronic Engineers to watch gEDA and contribute if possible(k-logic I think is dead).


One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
