Interview question I guess :) .........
It is rather simple here the '-' sign does not denote any value .Remember that in verilog the valid values are only 1,0,X,Z . So when you assign "-" . this is treated as a string and then the ascii value of this "-" is taken which is 2D is hex. The '0' bit value of "-" is ascii is then assigned to the varia

$fopen will only open the file. To do any file operation in verilog this has to be done first. for reading from file try $memreadb (for binary files) or $memreadh (for hex files).
U also have $fscanf, $fgetc, $fread to read files. Not sure

yah.. what dcreddy said..
never leave unknowns in any default/reset condition as they will affect the simulation/synthesis.. If you don't care about them then don't put them in then case statement..
the main problem is your using "?".. personally i never would use a x or ? in my code.. if you don't care about their state changing, then either

I can't think of any technical advantage. When writing code, hexadecimal notation is simply more compact and usually easier to read than binary notation.

Previously I had trouble with the variations of "readmem". A testbench from last year contained the following comment.
// Old commands for using ASCII hex input files
// Pull the VLIW into the temporary memory array
// $readmemh("sample.hex", tmpMem, 0);
That testbench needed binary input data. I solved the problems and got it to work as

I think you mean a BCD-to-7-segment decoder.
Here is the 'case' statement from a digital clock project that I wrote some time ago. Maybe it will help you.
'nibble' is the 4-bit input code (similar to your BCD value), and 'segment' is an 8-bit register connected to the 7-segment display (and its unused decimal point). It displays hex digits 0

As I got a notification to send the final solution from admins
here you are
1- use readmemb, readmemh for read binary and hex data. This option is supported in most of tools
2- use PLI (standard file IO functions) like is more powerful and gives more flexibility but not supported in trial version, student version tools

In above case you read hex data from data.txt file to read memory data. You can use for loop to traverse through all the location.
To write data to text file use: $dumpfile("data.txt");

$readmemh is not a very good function. Try using $fread instead. Works better, can read decimal or hex numbers and has a syntax similar to C programming.

$readmemh() is very usful for such tasks.
Need to define an array, the file should hold hex values (in text, not a binary file), readmemh loads the values into the array.
google readmemh and you'll find a few examples.

I don't know if 320 is a decimal or hex, but in either way, you don't need a divider block if dividing 8 bit data by 320 is what you are looking for, because the quotient is always 0, isn't it ?
Or are you expecting 8 bit output to be lesser than 1 ?

At the moment, I convert the values to hex using matlab (using num2hex). But when I use readmemh, it assumes that the 32bit variable is a 'regular' number and not a floating number?

Use readmemh/readmemb system functions to read from the .raw file. To confirm what is read is correct or simply see the hex contents of the raw file, use a hex editor where you can simply open the raw file and see the hex numbers.

As I don't have a model for ROM so I am creating it by declaring an array of specific depth. Now my problem is to store the content of hex file (generated by processor compatible compiler) to the array in such a way that the fixed size value written on each line in the hex file shall be stored on each address of array. So that I can use it as ROM.
