How to install latest Icarus Verilog

The latest stable version of Icarus Verilog (0.8.x) does not support the "generate" construct, while the development branch (0.9.x) does.

As a remainder, the quickest way to install it on Debian/Ubuntu is:

sudo su


apt-get purge verilog


apt-get install build-essential git-core autoconf gperf flex bison


git clone git://icarus.com/~steve-icarus/verilog


cd verilog


source autoconf.sh


./configure


make


make install


cd ..


rm -rf verilog
