Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::project 1.0

Syntax project_new [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-cmp <revision_name> ] [-device <device> ] [-family <family> ] [-no_cmp] [-overwrite] [-sim <revision_name> ] <project_name>
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-cmp <revision_name> Revision name to open. Defaults to project name.
-device <device> Device name
-family <family> Family name
-no_cmp Option to indicate that revision is not opened automatically
-overwrite Option to overwrite existing project and revision
-sim <revision_name> Revision name to open
<project_name> Project name
Creates and opens a new project with the specified project name.

If the "-cmp" and "-sim" options are both specified and have 
different names, the "-sim" option is ignored.

Assignments created or modified by using this Tcl command are 
not saved to the Quartus Prime Settings File (.qsf) unless you
explicitly call one of the following two Tcl commands:

1) export_assignments
2) project_close (unless "-dont_export_assignments" is specified)

These two Tcl commands reside in the ::quartus::project Tcl 
package. You must save assignment changes before you run 
Quartus Prime command-line executables. Note, however, that 
the Tcl commands "execute_flow" and "execute_module" (part 
of the ::quartus::flow Tcl package) automatically call 
"export_assignments" before they run command-line executables.
