I tried to do some development using P99SE, aimed at a Xilinx
FPGA.  I did get as far as simulation, but when I tried to get
that compiled into downloadable form, I hit a brick wall.  I got
a variety of files, Xilinx .XNF files, VHDL files, etc.  But, I
was never able to get Xilinx's free tools to accept any of these files.

I eventually gave up, and bought the Xilinx Foundation, and did
all my work in that, although their schematic tools are hideous, and
the rest of the interface is just a little klunky.  But, Foundation
works, and produces FPGA and CPLD designs that work precisely
the way the simulation says they will.
