Delete an RPM


delete_rpm [‑quiet] [‑verbose] <rpm>


Name Description
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<rpm> RPM to delete




Deletes the specified Relationally Placed Macro (RPM) from the design.

An RPM is a list of logic elements (FFS, LUT, CY4, RAM, etc.) collected into a set (U_SET, H_SET, and HU_SET). The placement of each element within the set, relative to other elements of the set, is controlled by Relative Location Constraints (RLOCs). Logic elements with RLOC constraints and common set names are associated in an RPM. Refer to the Constraints Guide (UG625) for more information on defining these constraints.

Only user-defined RPMs can be deleted from the design. RPMs defined by the hierarchy or defined in the netlist cannot be deleted by this command.


-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.

<rpm> - (Required) The RPM to be deleted.


The following example deletes the specified RPM (cs_ila_0/U0) from the design:

delete_rpm cs_ila_0/U0
