Description

Sets the character that will be used for separating levels of hierarchy in the design.

Note: This command operates silently and does not return direct feedback of its operation

Arguments

<separator> - (Optional) The new character to use as a hierarchy separator. Valid characters to use as the hierarchy separator are: '/', '@', '^', '#', '.', and '|'. The default character is '/', and is used when no <separator> is specified.

-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.

Examples

This example changes the hierarchy separator to the '|' character:

set_hierarchy_separator |

The following example restores the default hierarchy separator, '/':
