Description

Export IP generated static, dynamic, netlist, verilog/vhdl stubs, and memory initializaton files to the ip_user_files.

Arguments

-of_objects <arg> - (Optional) Target object, IP, block design (.bd), or a fileset, for which the generated files needs to be exported.

-ip_user_files_dir <arg> - (Optional) Directory path to IP user files. By default, if this switch is not specified then this this command will use the path specified with the IP.USER_FILES_DIR project property value.

-ipstatic_source_dir <arg> - (Optional) Directory path to the static IP files. By default, if this switch is not specified then this command will use the path specified with the SIM.IPSTATIC_SOURCE_DIR project property value.

Note: If the -ip_user_files_dir switch is specified, then by default the IP static files will be exported under the sub-directory with the name ipstatic. If this switch is specified in conjunction with -ipstatic_source_dir, then the IP static files will be exported in the path specified with the -ipstatic_source_dir switch.

-lib_map_path <arg> - (Optional) Directory path to the pre-compiled simulation library.

-no_script - (Optional) Do not export simulation scripts generated by the export_simulation Tcl command. By default, this command will call the export_simulation command to generate simulation scripts as well after exporting the generated files.

-sync - (Optional) Delete exported IP/BD sources and simulation scripts from the ip_user_files dir.

-reset - (Optional) Delete all IP/BD generated sources and simulation script files from the ip_user_files dir.

-force - (Optional) Overwrite existing source files in the ip_user_files directory with generated IP/BD files.

-quiet (Optional) Execute the command quietly, ignoring any command line errors and returning no messages. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.

-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.

Examples

The command export_ip_user_files -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo] exports the following:

  • Dynamic files for the char_fifo IP to <project>/<project>.ip_user_files/ip/char_fifo directory
  • IP static files to <project>/<project>.ip_user_files/ipstatic directory
  • Simulation script to the <project>/<project>.ip_user_files/sim_scripts/char_fifo/<simulator> directory

The following command, will export char_fifo IP static and dynamic files to the my_proj/user_files/static and /my_proj/user_files directories:

export_ip_user_files \
     -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo] \
     -ipstatic_source_dir /my_proj/user_files/static
     -ip_user_files_dir /my_proj/user_files \

The following command will export char_fifo simulation script files using the pre-compiled simulation library from /my_proj/compiled_libs/lib:

export_ip_user_files \
     -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo] \
     -lib_map_path /my_proj/compiled_libs/lib

The following command will export files without generating simulation scripts for the char_fifo IP:

export_ip_user_files \
     -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo] \
     -no_script

The following command will delete generated files and simulation scripts for the char_fifo IP:

export_ip_user_files \
     -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo]\
     -sync

The following command will delete all generated files and simulation scripts for the char_fifo IP:

export_ip_user_files \
     -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo] \
     -reset

The following command will overwrite all generated files and simulation scripts for the char_fifo:

export_ip_user_files \
     -of_objects [get_ips char_fifo] \
     -force
