gte910h asks: "I am an embedded developer who is learning how to program programmable logic devices (CPLD's and FPGA's). I have looked at VHDL and other Hardware Description Languages, but they seem so obtuse compared to C or Java. Has anyone tried any of the tools based off of general purpose programming languages, like JHDL. Do they work as well as VHDL and other HDL's? These would make things this type of development acessable to more people if they work well enough." Are packages similar to JHDL available for other languages?
