Foundation XVHDL: Synthesis of VHDL causes message: No entity selected.


In designs with top level vhdl, and multiple vhdl files, the
architecture and entity of the top level needs to be
specified in the options. If it is not, when the design is
synthesized, XVHDL assumes the last vhdl file compiled as the
top. This will give a message like:

"No entity was selected, <entity_name> assumed"


In the "Advanced" section of the Synthesis -> Options dialog
box, specify the entity and architecture to be synthesized.
