- A Logic Circuit Simulation Library in C++
NEW - The official libLCS blog is now at liblcs.blogspot.com
14th November 2006
libLCS-0.0.40 has been released. You can download it either by going through the download page, or directly from the libLCS project page on sourceforge.net. With this release libLCS facilitates continuous assignments. The complete changelog can be found here. See the user guide and examples to learn more about incorporating continuous assignments.
I had talked about test suites for libLCS during the release of libLCS-0.0.34. However, they are not yet ready. I am looking for people who can volunteer to help me in developing such test suites. See the contributions section below for more information.
The links to websites and documentation of older versions of libLCS can be found on the archives page.
libLCS is a library for Logic Circuit Simulation developed in 100% c++. The ultimate aim of LCS is to become a thorough hardware description library, matching the functionality of the Verilog hardware description language, while keeping the usage (and syntax) as intuitive as possible. Currently, it supports simulation of digital systems containing logic gates, flipflops, clock, user defined modules, and facilitates propogation delays and continuous assignments.
As libLCS is still in very early stages of development, it might contain bugs. Moreover, the API can get redone a lot of times before a beta version is released. However, you are encouraged to use it and report bugs and issues, if any, and help in making LCS popular ;-) and reliable. Use the above links to download, install, and start using the library. For bug reporting and feature/support requests, use the appropriate links provided on the libLCS project page on sourceforge.net. For problems with using the library, post your questions on the libLCS mailing list or public forums, links to which are again available on the project page. For easy access, I have also listed direct links to mailing list, forums etc. under the section Links below.
Like the library itself, this website is also under constant development. Hence, bear with any incovenience or lack of information. Do feel free to write in your comments to my yahoo.com id sivachandra_br. If you find the library usefull/worthwhile, then do let me know as to how it is being usefull to you. I am always keen to know as to who is using the library.

As libLCS is free software, all contributions will be voluntary. Contributors will not be provided with monetary compensation except in special cases. However, you can always hope for a pizza or two over weekends ;)
