Important Notes

· VHDL is case insensitive, therefore there is no difference using either uppercase or lowercase for reserved words.

· If an identifier is placed between leading and trailing backslashes, it becomes an extended identifier and is no longer a reserved word (e.g. \port\ is not a reserved word).
