A Tcl Console Window is available in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software GUI by clicking . You can run Intel® Quartus® Prime Tcl commands directly in the Tcl Console window. the Intel® Quartus® Prime Tcl shell interprets all Tcl commands that you type in the Tcl Console.
Note: Some shell commands such as cd, ls, and others can be run in the Tcl Console window, with the Tcl exec command. However, for best results, run shell commands and Intel® Quartus® Prime executables from a system command prompt outside of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software GUI.
Tcl messages appear in the System tab (Messages window). Errors and messages written to stdout and stderr also are shown in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Tcl Console window.
