Deletes the specified Pblocks from the design. Pblocks are created using the create_pblock command.


-hier - (Optional) Specifies that Pblocks nested inside the specified Pblock should also be deleted. If the parent Pblock is deleted without the -hier option specified, the nested Pblocks will simply be moved up one level.

-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<pblocks> - (Required) One or more Pblocks to be deleted.
