I don't see what the need for extending the language is.
GHDL 'converts' VHDL into object code.
I think you can call functions in C libraries from VHDL code (and possibly
also VHDL from C, but don't quote me on that)... VHPI, or VHDL PLI are your
As an example of software written in VHDL, there's a program to generate
fractional dividers in VHDL, written in VHDL.
