Syntax execute_assignment_batch [-h | -help] [-long_help] <tcl commands>
Arguments -h | -help Short help

<tcl commands> Tcl list of Tcl commands

Iterates through the specified Tcl list of Tcl commands and executes each command sequentially in batch mode. In batch mode, Tcl commands that set Quartus Prime Settings File (.qsf) assignments are optimized to prevent them from repeatedly write-locking and write-unlocking the QSF during consecutive calls, thereby slowing down the execution. Currently, only the following commands are supported: assignment_group remove_all_global_assignments remove_all_instance_assignments remove_all_parameters set_global_assignment set_instance_assignment set_io_assignment set_location_assignment set_parameter set_power_file_assignment
