Subject: Re: [boost] Flow-based programming library for Boost?
Date: 2012-12-31 12:11:26
I reading the last several weeks of discussion, I still feel confident that SystemC provides everything under discussion.
Aside from having the support of every major EDA vendor, being an IEEE standard and cross-platform (*nix, OSX, Windows), it has a large body of very good documentation and ongoing support from multiple contributors.
