Also syntactically it spawned a descendent in VHDL . But unfortunately VHDL is generally less popular than the more "c like" and more fractured Verilog


I have heard that Verilog's popularity is mostly in the US, and even there VHDL has some popularity in universities. Correct me if I'm wrong (this not being first hand experience).
