The best way to think about the two different assignment operators (<= is an
assignment *not* less-than-or-equal) is that one happens “now” and the other
is resolved on clock edges.
So assuming that a & b are 1 bit wide and that initially both a and b are 0 (or
in verilog terms 1b0).
In the first example, both a and b will be 1b1. In the second example, at the end
of the first clock cycle, a will be 1b1 and b will be 1b0. At the end of the next
clock cycle, a will be 1b1 and b will be 1b1 also.
