Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::project

Syntax project_new [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-family <family> ] [-overwrite] [-part <part> ] [-revision <revision_name> ] <project_name>
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-family <family> Family name

-part <part> Part name
-revision <revision_name> Revision name
<project_name> Project name
Description

Creates and opens a new project with the specified project name. If the "-revision" option is not specified, the project name is used to create the revision. Assignments created or modified by using this Tcl command are not saved to the Quartus Prime Settings File (.qsf) unless you explicitly call one of the following two Tcl commands: 1) export_assignments 2) project_close (unless "-dont_export_assignments" is specified) These two Tcl commands reside in the ::quartus::project Tcl package. You must save assignment changes before you run Quartus Prime command-line executables. Note, however, that the Tcl commands "execute_flow" and "execute_module" (part of the ::quartus::flow Tcl package) automatically call "export_assignments" before they run command-line executables.
