i want to make a 16 bit alu with ripple carry adder using 1 bit alu as 
component. The 1 bit alu must perform addition, subtraction, and, or, 
xor, nor. It contains 3 multiplexers: ainvert, binvert and operation. I 
am trying to create the 16 bit alu but many errors occur and i dont 
really know what to do to fix them... Can someone explain what goes

Line 109 is:
A1: ALU1 port map( A(0), B(0), Cin, S(0), c1);

The definition of ALU1 is:
component ALU1 is
    Port ( Oper:in STD_LOGIC_VECTOR(2 DOWNTO 0);
       a, b, Cin: in STD_LOGIC;
       Biv ,Aiv: in BIT;
        R, Cout: out STD_LOGIC);
end component;

So the compiler expect 8 arguments, but only get 5.
And he complains the type mismatch.

Yes i saw this too and i fixed it. Having fixed this does the existing 
code perform all the functions of an 16-bit alu?
thank you for your time!
