1.7.4. Command-Line Interface

You can run the Fault Injection Debugger at the command line with the quartus_fid executable, which is useful if you want to perform fault injection from a script.

Table 5.  Command line Arguments for Fault Injection

Short Argument

Long Argument

Description

c cable

Specify programming hardware or cable. (Required)

i index
