@Michael Dunn : I have to say that the air did turn blue on getting the email rejecting my application for an account at Aldec, especially as the automated e-mail gave three possible reasons for the refusal.
I think I might send the local Aldec office (it's only 30 miles from where I am sitting), a link to this blog and see if it improves my chances of gaining an account, instead of an automated reply saying the refusal could be for three issues.
I know that the software is expensive to produce, but so is the development of the chips it is designed to programme.
Where would the AVR and PIC be if the chip vendors had not bundled a comprehensive IDE to get developers going?
