Accessing UART JTAG programmatically

Hello, 

I have a Cyclone V FPGA and it has a USB JTAG. I want to access the JTAG programmatically using python script. Is there any DLL (and the documentation) exposed by Altera to access JTAG? 

I am able to perform source level debug on this Cyclone V FPGA, which means the JTAG is fully functional.

There are several previous discussions about JTAG UART interface, jtag_atlantic.dll etc.

Hello, Thank for the reply. Is there any documentation on jtag_atlantic.dll. I looked as sample code but unable to understand it. My requirement is to access my SRAM programatically over JTAG interface. Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
