Editor highlight patterns for SystemVerilog

This page points you to some highlighting patterns for editing SystemVerilog code. Some have been prepared by external parties, some by Doulos for use on our SystemVerilog training courses

Nedit

Nedit is a Unix/Linux gui-based editor with very flexible macro facilities. The pattern file was prepared by Doulos. To use the patterns, download the syntax pattern file systemverilog.pats.

To import the patterns, start nedit as follows:

nedit -import systemverilog.pats

Then make sure you Save Default preferences to incorporate the highlight patterns in your own personal settings permanently.

Textpad

Textpad is a Windows gui-based editor. The pattern file was prepared by Doulos. To use the patterns, download the syntax pattern file systemverilog.syn - you can also download it from this page at Textpad's site: verilog.zip.

To use the patterns, follow the instructions here.

Vim

Vim syntax highlighting patterns are available here - these patterns were originally contributed to the "OVM World" website (now defunct) by Amal Khailtash and therefore also include highlighting for OVM. They are based on the script described here on the Vim.org website

Instructions for using Vim highlighting patterns are here.

Emacs

Emacs syntax highlighting patterns are included in Michael McNamara's Verilog mode, which can be downloaded here.

There are installation instructions here.
