This is a cool little utility that will make your SystemVerilog look much more professional. It simply adds an end-of-method identifier (label) to every task or function so that every endfunction turns into endfunction : function_name (with the appropriate function_name of course.. Duh!) and endtask turns into endtask : task_name.  This really makes your code more readable and consistent.

How to use? very easy – download the file below and then simply run it on every file you wish to process, like this:

%./endmaker file.sv

 

Try it out now! Let us know what you think.

 

Note: when you save the file, sometimes an automatic file extension will be added, e.g. endmaker.txt. You can safely rename the file to get rid of it.
