GHDL can be downloaded (cloned) with git clone from GitHub. GitHub offers the transfer protocols HTTPS and SSH. You should use SSH if you have a GitHub account and have already uploaded an OpenSSH public key to GitHub, otherwise use HTTPS if you have no account or you want to use login credentials.

The created folder <GitRoot>\ghdl is used as <GHDLRoot> in later instructions or on other pages in this documentation.

On Linux
