Could anyone help me to get /AUTOPERL .../ to work with emacs. AUTOINSERTLISP works fine. But I could not insert a text based on the perl script. Do I need to have any include files or what is the command line I should use to expand AUTOPERL.
My code:
/*AUTOPERL
for($i=0;$i<5;$i++)
print "assign signal_A[$i] = signal_B[$i];\n";
*/

It does not expand if I use command line
emacs --batch tb.v -f verilog-batch-auto

Please help me.

There isn't an AUTOPERL, sorry if something mentions one. Use:

/AUTOINSERTLISP(insert (shell-command-to-string "perl ...."))/

I could be convinced to make AUTOINSERTSHELL, but don't want to get language specific after that.

Thank you Wilson. That is great, it works fine for a simple print. I am still not able to get my example working. Can you help me to get following perl to get executed. Thanks.
for($i=0;$i<5;$i++)
print "assign signal_A[$i] = signal_B[$i];\n";

Put it into a script file, then call the script. Otherwise quoting is a mess.

BTW if your output code will really look anything like that you should just be using a Verilog "generate for" and/or "generate if" instead.
