Hi @quincyq2003

 

How about the following command ?

 

% file TOP.bit

TOP.bit: Xilinx BIT data - from TOP;UserID=0XFFFFFFFF;CO - for S=TRUE;Version=2015.4 - built AAAAAA(2017/09/11) - data length 0x********

 

"file" command is useful to confirm header information on linux.

 

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Hi @quincyq2003

 

I'm using CentOS 6.9. I can see more detail information via /usr/bin/file on CentOS 6.9.

Also, I try to confirm the result of "file" on Bash on Ubuntu on Windows.

The result is same as CentOS.

 

Could you try it on Bash On Ubuntu on Windows ?

 

Thank you.

Best regards,
