I want to give a quick try on some tcl command and it raises an error like below. Can anyone give me some example of how to use tcl console on quartus prime pro?

You're using command line commands in the Tcl console.  That won't work.  You can check out the built-in help from a command line (quartus_sh --qhelp) or use the appropriate user guide (the scripting user guide at the bottom here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/programmable/support-resources/design-software/user-guides.html).

Yes, I do know quartus_fit is command line command.
The reason why I tried it in Tcl console is because of the error message above...
I tried eco_reroute command is it says it's only available with quartus_fit command. Does this mean do I need to put "eco_reroute" command inside some tcl script (like reroute.tcl) and then run it in the command line with "quartus_fit -t reroute.tcl"? Then, what's the use of Tcl console?

Hello,


I would use scripting instead of the tcl console window in Quartus.

Since you are using the ECO compilation flow, you can follow this Application Note on how to execute the .tcl scripts: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683873/current/an-922-using-the-eco-compilation-flow.html


I think your problem is you didn't include "load_package eco" in your tcl script.
