13.3 XST- ERROR:HDLCompiler:114 - "<*>.v" Line 10: /* in comment

Description

Beginning with the 13.3 software, the XST new parser will produce the following error message when it encounters nested comments:

ERROR:HDLCompiler:114 - "top.v" Line 10: /* in comment
INFO - You can change the severity of this error message to warning using switch -change_error_to_warning "HDLCompiler:114"

The error points to the following codes:

/*  This is a comment

     /* assign out = in;  */

 */

Solution

This comment, which contains the comment on the assign statement below, is not allowed in Verilog. It triggers an HDLCompiler:114 error.

To fix this issue, you need to ensure that there are no nested comments.

You can change the severity of this error message to warning by using the switch:
-change_error_to_warning "HDLCompiler:114".
