Reading Design Sources - 2023.2 English

When using Non-Project Mode, the various design sources are read into the in-memory design for processing by the implementation tools. Each type of Vivado Design Suite source file has a read_* Tcl command to read the files, such as read_verilog, read_vhdl, read_ip, read_edif, or read_xdc. Sources must be read each time the Tcl script or interactive flow is started.

Tip: Because there is no project structure to add the files or import the files into, you should not use the add_files or import_files Tcl commands to add files to a non-project based design.
