Re: CAS and spinlocks (was: Re: [f-cpu] another DATE report)

Well there is a lot of missing things in VHDL source so it would be quite
difficult for me to do something since I don't have the slight idea of
implementation you want to make, especially regarding with memory. And please
don't forget, I'm a programmer, not a VHDL guru. I can read VHDL but don't
think for you. If you want me to do something I first need more materials than
I can find in your source to be able to figure out how to proceed (a lot of
details about the implementation of your F-CPU sound fuzzy to my ears for the

Oh come on. I really know it is very difficult but I would wait to see how we
can code a CAS before deciding if a CAS2 cannot be done. That's all. Yourself
you said : "impossible is not french".

Anyway, I'm not speaking about to have an instruction CAS2 but something like
