Re: Command line

Hi,

For command line options check the following user guide
http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx13_1/devref.pdf

 

For similar options check this AR http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/41265.htm

 

From GUI you canuse limited feature but command line allows you to use different options.

 


Thanks

Re: Command line

Hi,

 

TCL is a script based approach when compared to the GUI, it is fast and widely used in regression testings.

Please refer Har**bleep** pointed link for ISE and UG894 for Vivado to know Xilinx TCL supported options and their details.

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2013_4/ug894-vivado-tcl-scripting.pdf

 

 

Coming to the benifit/differences I think you can visit the below link, more less all command lines tools offer the same advantages.

Hope this helps.

Re: Command line

Hello,

You can do everything in command line mode as gui does.

To get a better understanding of the command line mode please implement the project from gui and then go to project--> click on generate TCL scrpit. this will generate you the scrpit which you can run in the command line mode.

Go to ise commadn line mode and then simply source the tcl script generated by gui.

xtclsh test.tcl rebuild_project. TCL file name could be different i am not sure about it. once you sourced the TCL script simply see the command line mode it does the all the stages which you performed in the gui and please take a look at the generated scipt by opening in notepad.

Once you complete with the implementation invoke the gui from command line by typing ise.

I hope this will help you

Re: Command line

Hi

GUI usually has most commonly used commands

Each of the option in the GUI will have an equivalent switch in command line

You can use the GUI set the options and compile the design. If the results are satisfactory you can refer to cmd log text file in the Project folder location to create a batch file. This batch file can be used for automation or for users who don't prefer GUI.

Refer to command line reference guide for the switches available with each executable such as xst, map etc
