Default The Luddite Needs Reference Books...

Luddite Me, who's forgotten most of the Verilog he once knew, needs to
start doing serious HDL-based design. No more schematic-orphans for
me.

Are there good reference books for Verilog or VHDL? Ideally,
something akin to Java in a Nutshell (Java), the Post Script Red
(language reference) and Blue (tutorial and cookbook) series, or K&R?

Thanks.

Sounds like you need a copy of the verilog standard. You can buy it on ieee's
site, its about $100.

There is a book that has side by side examples of code, one written in VHDL
the other in Verilog.
Forgot the title but I'll send it tommorow.

Have you looked at our Golden Reference Guides? Not for beginners,
but then you're not a beginner :-) We give them away on courses,
but you can buy them via the website (no e-commerce just yet, sorry;
you have to fax back an order form):

Nicholas,

I still use Palnitkar's _Verilog HDL_ book, along with Stuart
Sutherland's _Verilog 2001_ book and reference guides (which came with
the book).

There may be an updated version of the former -- I bought it in 1996
-- but it still covers most of the stuff that'll jog your memory. The
latter explicitly details the differences between Verilog-95 and
Verilog-2001.

You probably want a copy of Janick Bergeron's _Writing Test Benches_,
too, as it has a lot of good stuff.
