Hi all, 

 

I am new to cyclone iv development and I am running Quartus Prime Lite Edition 17.1 

 

Everything is great, I am just looking for an auomatd scriptable way to do the equivalent of Processing -> Start Compilation for my project? 

 

Many thanks!

Use execute_flow -compile command to Compile the design. 

For more information refer below link for information and training on tcl

Take a look to https://github.com/olofk/fusesoc

I don't use it yet, but seems interesting.

execute_flow is a tcl script command that is executed within a quartus executable. Go back and read the link ( https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/design-software/quartus-ii/sof-qts-scripting.html ) referred to in the first response in greater detail. execute_flow is shown in context there.
