What are the backends supported by gnetlist (from geda-gnetlist?
• $ gnetlist -g help will list all the available backends of gnetlist. • The VHDL backend of gnetlist can’t be trusted when I extract the VHDL netlists from the schematics drawn by gschem. • Real logic designs are captured as Verilog or VHDL in text format, and compiled directly to programming files which are loaded into FPGAs, CPLDs, and the like. At the schematic level one just draws lots of boxes with lots of pins corresponding to the FPGA or CPLD. Therefore, using gschem to draw a logic circuit and then netlist to VHDL isn’t a commonly used design flow nowadays. Instead, people just create a textual design using a text editor.
