I want to get started with programming CPLDs. However, I'm confused about which development kit to get? I have about $200 to spend. I feel that Altera has slightly better software - their Web version is free, it seems. So I'm mostly interested in that but have my options open. I'm also wondering weather I should initially learn VHDL or Verilog? I've found a great book, titled Digital Design with CPLD Applications and VHDL. I'm finding the book easy to understand and this is important to me as I have very little experience with HDLs. But I did take a course in Handel-C for FPGAs when in school - though I'm not sure how helpful that will be. Any suggestions on how to get started would be appreciated.
