SCL Reference: Constants

SCL has many ways of representing constants in code.

intVar    = 1;              // decimal 1
intVar    = B"10";          // binary 10
intVar    = #8#70#;         // octal 70
intVar    = #10#10#;        // decimal 10
intVar    = #16#FFFFFFFF#;  // hexadecimal FFFFFFFF
intVar    = #16#FFFF_FFFF#; // '_'s ignored!
intVar    = 1e9;            // decimal 1 billion in scientific notation
charVar   = 'a';            // character 'a'
stringVar = "SCL";          // String example
boolVar   = true;           // enumeration type example
pin       = '1';            // pin hi
pin       = '0';            // pin lo

Note that SCL does not support any decimal or floating point types. This can lead to some strange situtations. For example to set VDD to 3.5 V use the following

VDD = 3500 mv;
