The syntax for a task declaration is:

task name (ports);

   [optional declarations];



Following are the two types of tasks:

Static task: Declarations retain their previous values the next time the task is called.

Automatic task: Declarations do not retain previous values.


CAUTION!   Be careful when using these tasks; Vivado synthesis treats all tasks as automatic.

Many simulators default to static tasks if the static or automatic is not specified, so there is a chance of simulation mismatches. The way to specify a task as automatic or static is the following:

task automatic my_mult... //or

task static my_mult ...
