Sorry to "beat a dead horse", but I find it difficult to accept the
argument that developers and users know what the correct meaning of what
is written in the LRM. We have quite a few issues in which we have not
even been able to agree among ourselves what is the correct
interpretation. We still don't know how generates are supposed to work.
Heck, we haven't even been able to agree whether spaces are allowed in
@(*) ! (Looks like a curse...)
Gone are the days in which there was a "golden reference
simulator" (Verilog-XL) which was already mature when the standard came
out. (Even then, it was only good if you had a license for it.)
Also gone are the days in which a simulator came with its own LRM.
Today it just points to IEEE 1364-2001.
