set_global_assignment -library

Hi,

I have inherited a design with the following line in the qsf file:

set_global_assignment -name VHDL_FILE ../../source/dmod_prop_comm/prop_interface.vhd -library PROP_Interface_wrapper_10

I wonder what does the -library argument does?

Couldn't find any reference to this argument in the "Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition
Settings File Reference Manual".

It compiles it in a libray and can be used  in other vhdl modules that are compiled in the same lib.

If the library is different then it won't use it.

Thanks AEsqu!

is that a physical library (path)?

if so, how can i locate the full path?

i have a library with the same name under the qsys ip path generated by the platform designer (see in red below) are this is the library pointed in the qsf?

if so, will the files physically located in this path included in the PROP_Interface_wrapper_10 library although not specifically motioned in the qsf?

....\source\qsys_Omni_dBGO_main\ip\MR_DMOD_NIOS\MR_DMOD_NIOS_PROP_Interface_wrapper_0\PROP_Interface_wrapper_10\synth

No it is not a path, it is just a library name where the VHDL files are compiled in the compiler database.

In VHDL RTL code , there are used this way for example:

library IEEE;
use IEEE.std_logic_1164.all;

 

If no library are specified, they all go under the same work lib normally.
