3.5 Summary

We discussed the basic concepts of e in this chapter. These concepts lay the foundation for the material discussed in the further chapters.

  • Conventions for code segments, comments, white space, numbers, constants, and macros were discussed.

  • It is possible to import other e files in an e file. The import statements must always be the first statements in the file.

  • e contains data types such as scalar type and subtypes, enumerated scalar type, list type, and string type.

  • Simulator variables can be directly read or written from e code. One can access simulator variables by enclosing the hierarchical path to the simulator variable in single quotes.

  • There is a strict syntax hierarchy of statements, struct members, actions, and expressions. A strict hierarchy enforces coding discipline and minimizes errors.
