Quartus output files folder

Dear Forum, 

 

I am wondering what the best way is to organise a design using quartus. Quartus output file together with design files. How can I make quartus to organise the ouput files by folders (e.g. jic, sof, map .. and so on)?

Use Tcl scripts to drive the process. 

 

I use Tcl to generate Modelsim and Quartus files in tool-specific build directories. This allows my source and scripts to be located in their own unique area (which is checked into a code versioning system) and it allows me to build with different tool versions installed onto the same machine. 

 

Look at the source with these tutorials/documents:
