vim verilog mode

vim(gvim) on windows can set highlighting, but i haven't try it on linux. i think you can set it through .exrc file.
good luck.

gvim verilog

Hi,
I think emacs is the best for both VHDL and verilog editing.
For VHDL it has electric mode which helps you to type ur code
too fast without bothering about syntax!
For Verilog you get auto modes using which you can do module
connecttions to fast. You dont have to type sensitivity lists and portlists.
Too powerful feature just give it a try!

vi verilog mode

I do believe EMACS is the best editor, which has the auto-file features, and it is very useful when you edit
a complex design.

verilog vhdl syntax

I have used both XEmacs and vi/gvim for VHDL and Verilog. I think if you are using VHDL, Xemacs is the best because of its powerfull VHDL mode. The Xemacs has complex (as compared to vi/gvim) editing commands, like column select, searching ease.
In verilog, I made my own cutom file for Gvim which gives me the power of Verilog electric mode of Emacs and the inbuilt utilities of Gvim. I guess Gvim is simpler and elegant than Emacs.

vim verilog +configuration

I too found that xemacs with verilog_mode.el gives a colorful editing. You could possible customize the xemacs by using abbreviations. You can make your top level modules in 5 minutes otherwise could take days and prone to error.

For verilog-mode or VHDL-mode, GNU Emacs and XEmacs are totally the same. Gvim is good, but it's far from powerful than Emacs/XEmacs.
