Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-info <parent_name_id|base_name|entity_name|entity_definition|instance_name|full_path|short_full_path|node_type|creator|signaltapii|file_location|library|children|parameters> Option to specify the type of information to display.
-observable_type <all|pre_synthesis|post_synthesis|post_fitter|post_asm|stp_pre_synthesis> Option to specify the observable type of the name ID
<name_id> Option to specify the node name ID
Displays the specified type of information for the specified node 
name id. Type "get_names -long_help" to view how to get a collection 
of node name IDs.

If the "-observable_type" option is not specified, the default 
value is "all". The specified observable type must have the same 
observable type as specified in the "get_names" Tcl command which 
returned the currently specified node name id.

The value for "-observable_type" option can be one of 
the following:

Observable Type      Description
---------------      -----------------------------------
all                  Use post-Fitter information. If it is

                     information is used. Otherwise,
                     pre-synthesis information is used if it
pre_synthesis        Use pre-synthesis information.
post_synthesis       Use post-synthesis information.
post_fitter          Use post-Fitter information.
post_asm             Use post-Assembler information. The
                     post-Assembler information is only supported

stp_pre_synthesis    Use Signal Tap pre-synthesis information.

The info type for the "-info" option can be one of 
the following:

Info Type            Description
--------------       -----------------------------------
parent_name_id       The name id for the node's parent.
base_name            The node name, which consists of an 
                     entity name and/or an instance name 
                     separated by a colon if necessary.
entity_name          The entity name.
entity_definition    The entity definition.
instance_name        The instance name.
full_path            The full hierarchy path name, which 
                     consists of entity name(s) and/or the 
                     instance name(s). This path name 
                     excludes the current focus entity.
                     If there is nothing shown, the
                     name id is the current focus entity's
