Verilog::Netlist::Port - Port for a Verilog Module


  use Verilog::Netlist;
  my $port = $module->find_port('pinname');
  print $port->name;


A Verilog::Netlist::Port object is created by Verilog::Netlist::Module for every port connection in the module.


See also Verilog::Netlist::Subclass for additional accessors and methods.

Any array declaration for the port. This only applies to Verilog 1995 style ports which can declare port bits independently from the signal declarations. When using Verilog 2001 style ports, see the matching net declaration's data_type, msb and lsb methods instead, for example "$module-"find_net($port->name)->data_type>.
Returns any comments following the definition. keep_comments=>1 must be passed to Verilog::Netlist::new for comments to be retained.
The SystemVerilog data type of the port.
The direction of the port: "in", "out", or "inout".
Reference to the Verilog::Netlist::Module the port is in.
The name of the port.
Reference to the Verilog::Netlist::Net the port connects to. Only valid after the netlist is linked.
Approximately an alias of data_type for backward compatibility. Do not use for new applications.


See also Verilog::Netlist::Subclass for additional accessors and methods.

Prints debugging information for this port.
