4.1i XST - "ERROR:Xst:992 - /* found in comment. Module <name> compiled."


Keywords: XST, Verilog, comment, meta

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If a "/*" is used within a multi-line comment (e.g., /* I Love /* Xilinx */), XST fails with the following message:

"ERROR:Xst:992 - /* found in comment. Module <comment_test> compiled."


To avoid this error, insert a space between the "/" character and the "*" character.

This issue will be resolved in the next major XST release.
