The cli_commands.txt file contains the keys and responses corresponding to the first six packets. The following is an example of one entry:

# Table calculate, Entry 1
# key:[ p4calc.operation=6 ]
# response:[ action=operation_add ]
table_add calculate operation_add 0x6 =>

where calculate corresponds to the table name and operation_add corresponds to the action name.

In this example there is only one field in the key, as defined in calculator.p4:

    table calculate {
        key = {
            hdr.p4calc.operation : direct;
        }

When the example design is created, the following file is produced:

<proj_location>/vitis_net_p4_0_ex/vitis_net_p4_0_ex.gen/sources_1/ip/vitis_net_p4_0/src/verilog/vitis_net_p4_0_pkg.sv

This contains details of the table structures used in the test. It includes a list of associated actions per table, for example:

    // Table 'calculate' Action list 
    XilVitisNetP4Action XilVitisNetP4TableActions_calculate[] =
    '{
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_add,
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_sub,
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_mult,
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_and,
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_or,
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_xor,
        XilVitisNetP4Action_operation_drop
    };
