TCL console path initialization

I am trying to run commands in the Quartus 16.0 Tcl console window. Commands like quartus_map result in that the command name is invalid.  

 

I am running on Windows and have edited the PATH variable to include C:\altera\16.0\quartus\bin64 which is where the executables are located on my machine. I am able to run the commands from the nios shell but from the Quartus GUI tcl console I get the above error. So I am unsure how to setup whatever initialization is done when Quartus is launched so that it can find these commands or pickup the Windows PATH environment variable 

 

Thanks, 

Dave

Hi Dave, 

 

"quartus_map" you can use in the command line. (Altera Nios2 Command Shell) 

In the Quartus TCL console the "execute_flow -compile" will do a full compilation. 

You can look at the documentation (Quartus II Handbook, TCL-Scripting) or enter in the command line: 

"quartus_sh --qhelp" for detailed informations.

Refer the “quartus_map” from page number 2-45, 

We can runs one of the command-line executables, such as quartus_map or quartus_fit. If the -args option is specified, the arguments are passed to the command-line executable. 

 

Refer the “execute_module” from page number 3-103, 

Check example on page number 3-270.
