4.1i XST - "FATAL_ERROR: Xst:strutil.c:522:1.19 - Data corruption (StrCatIndexToStrPX) - Negative index Process will terminate"

Description

Keywords: range, negative, generate, instance, instantiate

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use negative numbers for index ranges in generate statements, the following error is reported:

"FATAL_ERROR:Xst:strutil.c:522:1.19 - Data corruption (StrCatIndexToStrPX) - Negative index Process will terminate."

Solution

XST does not support negative integers for index ranges in generate statements.

As of the 5.1i software release, an error message states this fact.
