m1.x ngdbuild. ERROR basut - Problem parsing '_'.
keywords: ngdbuild, basut, parsing, _
Gneral Description: when ngdbuild tries to run edif2ngd on an edn file of an abel macro, it will give an error if pins (in or out) begin with an _
ERROR: basut - Problem parsing '_'. On or above line ## in file C:/active/projects/blah/blah.edn. contact the vendor of the program that produced this EDIF file.
remove the _ from the beginning of the pin name in the abel code and update the macro. (in foundation). this may require you to then go in and use the symbol editor to put the pins back to match up with the rest of the schematic.
In the newer ABEL compiler (beginning with Foundation 1.5), the EDIF netlist writer automatically drops the leading "_" from the signal names. A warning is produced in the log file (abl2edif.log) for each changed name.
