Where to get the TCL Command Reference Guide for Quartus Prime

Hi,

 

I'm a Xilinx user for many years and new to Intel FPGA.

 

I would like to export all the IO information on the device to analyze (.e.g. double-check on the termination,  pre-emphasis buffer and etc.) by using TCL command in Quartus Prime as doing the same design cross-check offered in Xilinx Vivado:

https://docs.xilinx.com/r/en-US/ug835-vivado-tcl-commands/report_io

 

I couldn't find a similar TCL command for Quartus Prime, and there doesn't have a systematic and resourceful TCL command reference document or wiki available for Quartus Prime.

I used the "QUARTUS Prime Command Line and Tcl API Help" GUI but found it very not user friendly, it is slow and unable to provide the overview of all tcl command available, need to click into the package one by one...

I can verify the I/O setting in the Fitter report but I prefer to export it as an excel file to analyze. May I know how to do it in Quartus Prime? it is actually very simple to do it in Vivado...

 

Another question:

is there any comprehensive documentation on the Quartus Prime TCL command available? so that the Intel FPGA user/customer can easy refer to. there is a "Quartus II Scripting Reference Mannual" available, however, it is not as useful as what have already available by the Xilinx TCL Command Reference Guide. 

 

Thanks!
