3.1i XST - ERROR: (VLG__5002). <path>\<file_name> Line ##. Continuous assignment lval '<bus_name>' not a net

Description

Keywords: Verilog, continuous, bus, bit, bit-wise, wise

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The Verilog construct:

assign net_name = & ~bus_name;

may produce the following error if you try to perform a bit-wise operation on a negated bus:

ERROR: (VLG__5002). <path>\<file_name> Line ##. Continuous assignment lval '<bus_name>' not a net

Solution

The above Verilog construct is legal.

To work around the problem, add parentheses around the bus name (including the negation operator).

assign net_name = & (~bus_name);

NOTE: This problem is fixed in the 4.1i software release.
