* This header file describes the types and constants used to describe
* the possible target output types of the compiler. The backends
* provide one of these in order to tell the previous steps what the
* backend is able to do.
* The backend driver is hooked into the compiler, and given a name,
* by creating an instance of the target structure. The structure has
* the name that the compiler will use to locate the driver, and a
* pointer to a target_t object that is the actual driver.
struct target {
const char* name;
struct target_t* meth;
* The emit process uses a target_t driver to send the completed
* design to a file. It is up to the driver object to follow along in
* the iteration through the design, generating output as it can.

* conditional ident string using autoconfig.
* Revision 1.59 2002/06/05 03:44:25 steve
* Add support for memory words in l-value of
* non-blocking assignments, and remove the special
* NetAssignMem_ and NetAssignMemNB classes.
* Revision 1.58 2002/06/04 05:38:44 steve
* Add support for memory words in l-value of
* blocking assignments, and remove the special
* NetAssignMem class.
* Revision 1.57 2002/03/09 02:10:22 steve
* Add the NetUserFunc netlist node.
* Revision 1.56 2002/01/28 00:52:41 steve
* Add support for bit select of parameters.
* This leads to a NetESelect node and the
* vvp code generator to support that.
* Revision 1.55 2002/01/19 19:02:08 steve
* Pass back target errors processing conditionals.
* Revision 1.54 2001/08/25 23:50:03 steve
* Change the NetAssign_ class to refer to the signal
* instead of link into the netlist. This is faster
* and uses less space. Make the NetAssignNB carry
* the delays instead of the NetAssign_ lval objects.
* Change the vvp code generator to support multiple
* l-values, i.e. concatenations of part selects.
* Revision 1.53 2001/07/27 04:51:44 steve
* Handle part select expressions as variants of
* NetESignal/IVL_EX_SIGNAL objects, instead of
* creating new and useless temporary signals.
* Revision 1.52 2001/04/22 23:09:46 steve
* More UDP consolidation from Stephan Boettcher.
