Check whether the XML files describing a board in the given directory are valid. Only supported for board XML files with schema_version>=2.0. The XML files must contain an appropriate DOCTYPE declaration to be fully validated. Examples: <!DOCTYPE board SYSTEM "board.dtd"> <!-- for board.xml --> <!DOCTYPE ip_presets SYSTEM "preset.dtd"> <!-- for preset.xml --> <!DOCTYPE part_info SYSTEM "part0_pins.dtd"> <!-- for part0_pins.xml -->

Note that if a project is open and an IP repository loaded, this command will also validate certain IP and Interface attributes used in the board definition against the current IP repository.
