2.4.1. Creating Projects and Making Assignments

You can create a script that makes all the assignments for an existing project, and then use the script at any time to restore your project settings to a known state.

Click Project > Generate Tcl File for Project to automatically generate a .tcl file containing your assignments. You can source this file to recreate your project, and you can add other commands to this file, such as commands for compiling the design. This file is a good starting point to learn about project management and assignment commands.

To commit the assignments you create or modify to the .qsf file, you use the export_assignments or project_close commands. However, when you run the execute_flow command, Intel® Quartus® Prime software automatically commits the assignment changes to the .qsf file. To prevent this behavior, specify the -dont_export_assignments logic option.
