I always considered HDL( Verilog/vhdl) as a more reality-based type of extensively parallel SW programming :-) Had an interviewer once get agitated when I told him I thought there are similar paradigms in both HW and SW design. He twitched some when I said I like to do both. But we grew up on the Steve Ciarcia/CircuitCellar days. -Lee Studley -Lee Studley -Lee Studley

Really good to hear such news. I've visited Altera website, take a glance on it and saw the demos, seems quite promising.
