    Default VHDL block comment

    Hi,
    as far as I know the only way to mark a line as a comment
    in VHDL is to start the line with the characters "--" and it is
    not possible to make a block comment like it is usual in
    C/C++ (/* .... */). Anyway, is there a way in Quartus to add
    or remove automatically the comment characters to a couple
    of lines?

    Thanks

    If using the Quartus text editor you can highlight the text you want, and along the left are two icons to comment or uncomment selected text. Very useful for this. (I'm still amazed block comments haven't been added to VHDL, but most people don't need them with these types of editors)

    Hi Rysc, thanks for the information. Unfortunately I can
    not find this Icons. I assume either the feature is not
    available in my Quartus Version (6.1 full) or it is hidden
    in a special task bar.

    I think the feature was added in version 7.1. I see it in that version but not in 6.1.
