Document Table of Contents Interactive Shell Mode

Running an executable with the -s option starts an interactive Tcl shell. For example, to open the Intel® Quartus® Prime Timing Analyzer executable in interactive shell mode, type:
quartus_sta -s

Commands you type in the Tcl shell are interpreted when you press Enter. To run a Tcl script in the interactive shell type:

source <script name>

If a command is not recognized by the shell, it is assumed to be external and executed with the exec command.
