1.4.1. Resuming a Compilation with quartus_sh --flow
You can resume a compilation flow for a project from the last valid step completed in the flow with the -resume option of the quartus_sh --flow command. If you want to resume a compilation flow, ensure that no settings that affect the subsequent compilation stages have changed from initial start of the compilation.
You can also use the -start and -stop options of quartus_sh --flow command to start and stop a compilation flow at specific compilation tasks.
Resuming a compilation flow also updates the Compilation Dashboard to show how the flow is progressing.
For command syntax and example of how to use the flow resume feature, run quartus_sh --help=flow at a command prompt.
