1.8.7. Create a Compressed Configuration File
To create an option file that turns on compression, type the following command at a command prompt:
quartus_cpf -w <filename>.opt
This interactive command guides you through some questions, then creates an option file based on your answers. Use --option to cause quartus_cpf to use the option file. For example, the following command creates a compressed .pof that targets an EPCS64 device:
quartus_cpf --convert --option=<filename>.opt --device=EPCS64 <file>.sof <file>.pof
Alternatively, you can use the Convert Programming Files utility in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software GUI to create a Conversion Setup File (.cof). Configure any options you want, including compression, then save the conversion setup. Use the following command to run the conversion setup you specified.
quartus_cpf --convert <file>.cof
