Deletes the specified runs from the project, and deletes all results of the run from the project directory on the hard drive unless otherwise specified.


-noclean_dir - Do not delete the run results from the hard drive. The run will be deleted from the project, but the run files will remain in the project directory.

-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.

<runs> - (Required) The names of the synthesis or implementation runs to delete from the project.


The following example deletes the first_pass run from the project:

delete_runs first_pass
Note: In this example, all run results will also be removed from the project directory on the hard drive.

The following command deletes the first_pass run, but leaves the run results on the hard drive:

delete_runs -noclean_dir first_pass
