Feature Request: IEEE754 Radix

A simple yet powerful addition to increase productivity in simulation could be to add the single and double precision floating point number radix option to the waveform in ISIM / ISIM memory viewer.

 

Understandably you wouldn't want to add too many radices as it would be clutter, however since pretty much any design involving a CPU / microcontroller would implement IEEE754 in some way, I think this would be a worth while feature.

 

You could take this even one step further, and simply allow a custom radix option, where as users could specifiy a basic expression like

 

radix := ascii(7 downto 0) & unsigned(11 downto 8) ... etc etc

 

then IEEE754 could be writen as

 

radix := sign(31) * 2**(unsigned(30 downto 23) - 127) * (unsigned(22 downto 0) / 8388607).... or something like this...

 

Any thoughts or ideas? maybe an xilinx employee could past this on to the developers? =)
