4.2i Foundation, XABEL - "Error: could not find the file <file_name>.abl"

Description

Keywords: ABEL, .abl, XABEL, could, not, find, file, multiple, module, modules

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to synthesize a multiple module ABEL design in Foundation 4.2i, the following error is reported:

"Error: could not find the file <module_name>.abl"

Solution

ABEL designs that consist of multiple modules must be broken up into separate files -- each module must reside in its own file.

This requirement is limited to Foundation Classic (i.e., Foundation with the Aldec design entry tools); the requirement does not exist for WebPACK or ISE Project Navigator.
