Update single mif among multiple mif's in design with quartus_cdb

I cannot seem to find how to update 1 mif file using the 

quartus_cdb --update_mif

command. I can run the command appropriately from the command line to update all the mif's in the design, but it takes an unnecessary amount of time for this to complete. 

If anyone knows how to update just a single MIF file among multiple ones, it would be appreciated. 

Thanks. James

Hi @James_B 

 

Sorry for the late reply. May I know do you able to solve your issue? 

Do you still need help in regards to this case? 

 

Best Regards,

Richard Tan

Thanks for the response, but it appears Quartus can only update all the MIF files in a design. 

 

Quartus cannot update a single MIF when multiple MIF's exist for a design. 

 

Thanks, James

It also appears that this question was asked previously here in March 2019: 

 

https://community.intel.com/t5/Programmable-Devices/Is-it-possible-to-update-one-mif-file-instead-of-the-all-set-to/m-p/694582

 

From the Quartus GUI, it does not appear that this is possible. 

 

However, upon further searching, it appears possible with a Makefile, as shown here: 

 

https://github.com/tomverbeure/fpga_quick_ram_update/blob/179837c409beaad14c12c24f1323ec0cfa0468f5/quartus_max10_deca/Makefile

 

The makefile shows iterative update of all the Makefiles in a design, but one could select a limited set of makefiles to update.
