1.7.5. Update Memory Contents Without Recompiling

You can use two commands to update the contents of memory blocks in your design without recompiling. Use the quartus_cdb executable with the --update_mif option to update memory contents from .mif or .hexout files. Then, rerun the assembler with the quartus_asm executable to regenerate the .sof, .pof, and any other programming files.
quartus_cdb --update_mif <project name> [--rev=<revision name>]
quartus_asm <project name> [--rev=<revision name>]

The example shows the commands for a DOS batch file for this example. With a DOS batch file, you can specify the project name and the revision name once for both commands. To create the DOS batch file, paste the following lines into a file called update_memory.bat.

quartus_cdb --update_mif %1 --rev=%2
quartus_asm %1 --rev=%2

To run the batch file, type the following command at a command prompt:

update_memory.bat <project name> <revision name>
