In Canada, interest in hardware description languages (HDLs) has been mainly centered in the universities, and their principal use has been to help the teaching of computer architecture courses. Working compiler/simulator installations are located at Waterloo, Ecole Polytechnique (Montreal), Toronto, and New Brunswick; in each case the system is for Professor Chu's CDL running on IBM/360. Other universities with different computers such as Universite de Montreal, SGWU, and Carleton lack simulators but still make use of HDLs as descriptive vehicles in their courses.
