Bug report

GHDL is a complete VHDL simulator, using the GCC technology.

VHDL is a language standardized by the IEEE, intended for developing electronic systems.

GHDL implements the VHDL language according to the IEEE 1076-1987 or the IEEE 1076-1993 standard. GHDL compiles VHDL files and creates a binary which simulates (or executes) your design. See the features page for more details.

GHDL does not do synthesis: it cannot translate your design into a netlist.
