vhdl Extended identifiers


Example

VHDL extended identifiers are delimited by backslashes (\) and can contain letters, underscores, digits, spaces and other special characters (see the Language Reference Manual for a complete definition of special characters). The sequence of characters between backslashes can be reserved words of the VHDL language. Backslashes can be included in extended identifiers by doubling them (\\). Extended identifiers are case sensitive. Examples of (all different) extended identifiers:

\if\
\If\
\My Identifier\
\An \\ Identifier \\ With \\ Backslashes\
\&#@[]:.*\
\$£§{}\
