3.9. Scripting Support

You can run procedures and make settings in a Tcl script. You can also run some procedures at a command prompt. For detailed information about scripting command options, refer to the Intel® Quartus® Prime Command-Line and Tcl API Help browser.

To run the Help browser, type the command at the command prompt shown in this example:

quartus_sh --qhelp

You can specify many of the options either on an instance, at the global level, or both.

To make a global assignment, use the Tcl command shown in this example:

set_global_assignment -name <QSF Variable Name> <Value>

To make an instance assignment, use the Tcl command shown in this example:

set_instance_assignment -name <QSF Variable Name> <Value>\ -to <Instance Name>

To set the Synthesis Effort option at the command line, use the --effort option with the quartus_map executable shown in this example:

quartus_map <Design name> --effort= "auto | fast"
