    [<patterns>]

Returns

Drc_ruledeck

Usage

Name Description
[-regexp] Patterns are full regular expressions
[-nocase] Perform case-insensitive matching. (valid only when -regexp specified)
[-filter] Filter list with expression
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
[<patterns>] Match the 'drc_ruledeck' objects against patterns. Default: *

Categories

DRC, Object

Description

Delete one or more user-defined drc_ruledeck objects from the current project. The rule deck does not have to be empty to be deleted, and once it is deleted there is no way to recover it. The undo command will not restore a deleted rule deck.

Note: You cannot delete factory defined rule decks.

A rule deck is a collection of design rule checks grouped for convenience, to be run with the report_drc command at different stages of the FPGA design flow, such as during I/O planning or placement. The tool comes with a set of factory defined rule decks, but you can also create new user-defined rule decks with the create_drc_ruledeck command.

Note: This command returns nothing if successful, or returns an error if it fails.

Arguments

-regexp - (Optional) Specifies that the search <patterns> are written as regular expressions. Both search <patterns> and -filter expressions must be written as regular expressions when this argument is used. Xilinx® regular expression Tcl commands are always anchored to the start of the search string. You can add ".*" to the beginning or end of a search string to widen the search to include a substring. See http://perldoc.perl.org/perlre.html for help with regular expression syntax.
Note: The Tcl built-in command regexp is not anchored, and works as a standard Tcl command. For more information refer to http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/TclCmd/regexp.htm.

-nocase - (Optional) Perform case-insensitive matching when a pattern has been specified. This argument applies to the use of -regexp only.

-filter <args> - (Optional) Filter the results list with the specified expression. The -filter argument filters the list of objects returned by the search pattern, based on specified property values. You can find the properties on an object with the report_property or list_property commands.

The filter search pattern should be quoted to avoid having to escape special characters. String matching is case-sensitive and is always anchored to the start and to the end of the search string. The wildcard “*” character can be used at the beginning or at the end of a search string to widen the search to include a substring of the property value.
Note: The filter returns an object if a specified property exists on the object, and the specified pattern matches the property value on the object. In the case of the "*" wildcard character, this will match a property with a defined value of "".
For string comparison, the specific operators that can be used in filter expressions are "equal" (==), "not-equal" (!=), "match" (=~), and "not-match" (!~). Numeric comparison operators <, >, <=, and >= can also be used. Multiple filter expressions can be joined by AND and OR (&& and ||). The following gets input pins that do NOT contain the “RESET” substring within their name:
get_pins * -filter {DIRECTION == IN && NAME !~ "*RESET*"}
Boolean (bool) type properties can be directly evaluated in filter expressions as true or not true:
-filter {IS_PRIMITIVE && !IS_LOC_FIXED}
-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.

<patterns> - (Optional) Delete the drc_ruledeck objects that match the specified patterns. The default pattern is the wildcard '*' which deletes all user-defined rule decks from the current project. More than one pattern can be specified to delete multiple rule decks based on different search criteria.

Note: You must enclose multiple search patterns in braces, {}, or quotes, "", to present the list as a single element.

Examples

The following example deletes all user-defined rule decks from the current project:
