quartus_map generate symbol functionality does not support BDF file as input

quartus_map fails to generate symbol for BDF file

quartus_map --generate_symbol=file.bdf ... Error (12073): Can't create symbol or include file -- file file.bdf is a BDF or compatible file

I think this should be supported since from Quartus I can open BDF file and do File > Create/Update > Create Symbol Files for Current File.

 

I found that using quartus_map I can convert BDF file to HDL file and than create symbol file for HDL file using quartus_map. But in that case resulted symbol file is slightly different than one created from UI. To be more precise I get other pins order.

 

So I think quartus_map should allow me to convert BDF file to symbol file directly to get consistent results with Quartus UI.

Hi,

I tried to replicate the issue & realized the same behavior about .bdf file if as a input but I couldn`t find any difference in symbol file.

I think that the fact that quartus_map does not accept .bdf as input is already a problem. Because documentation everywhere says it should accept. And UI allows to do this.
