2.10. Command-Line Interface

You can optionally use command-line executables or scripts to run project commands, rather than using the GUI. This technique can be helpful if you have many settings and wish to track them in a single file or spreadsheet for iterative comparison. The .qsf supports only a limited subset of Tcl commands. Therefore, pass settings and constraints using a Tcl script:
  1. Create a text file with the extension .tcl that contains your assignments in Tcl format.
  2. Source the Tcl script file by adding the following line to the .qsf: set_global_assignment -name SOURCE_TCL_SCR IPT_FILE <file name> .
