I want to automate the synthesis of 100 IP cores so i wrote a small script (see below), but i am stuck on <rc> In easy way, rc seems does not like be called in a shallscript To make it works i need get in each folder, call the rc and then run <souce synth.tcl>Please anyone know how can i by pass the problem ?Thank you so much
cd $i rc source synth.tcl cd ..end
It really depends on what shell you are using (bash/tcsh/zsh/anything else)
For bash it would be something like that:
for i in "list of IP cores directories"; do
rc -bg -E -f <path_to_synth_script>
Please notice that this example could be extended/enhanced in many ways.
In reply to MStarilov:
I use "tcsh"
i am just stuck on rc command, if you scroll down you can see it
assuming than after rc i should call
what should a write for (rc)
Thank you so much for your help
In reply to tonio:
rc -f <script_file> - start RC with "source <script_file>"
If you mean sometimes like that:
rc -f setlibs.tcl - start RC with source setlibs.tclread_hdl -vhdl uut.vhdelaboratesource timing.tclsynthesize -to_mappedread_vcd switching.vcd -start_time 0 -end_time 459990report power >___asr64__--02_C.powerreport area >___asr64__--02_C.areareport timing >___asr64__--02_C.timing***************************
does not work
rc -f setlibs.tcl
read_hdl -vhdl uut.vhd
source timing.tclsynthesize -to_mappedread_vcd switching.vcd -start_time 0 -end_time 459990report power >___asr64__02_C.powerreport area >___asr64__02_C.areareport timing >___asr64__02_C.timing
What error is?
I fixed it.. but now the for loop does not work
have a look please... it does not jump in the second folder
foreach i(*.C) cd $i rc< synth.tcl cd ..end
1. Why you are using "rc < synth.tcl" instead of just "rc -f synth.tcl"?
2. It seems that you are using tcsh not bash shell. There are few bugs in tcsh including this one (just google it).
You can check the bug with:
foreach i ( *.C )
It will print only first.
But the following works (no tabulation before echo):
Hi,Yes i agree with you i think the template which the group sent to me, it mixes the codeanyway both of them work, and it gives me the same problem I think the problem is in synth.tcl in the end there is exit command to get out from rc, Do you know any other command to exit rc without terminate all...?Thank you for your help
source setlibs.tclread_hdl -vhdl uut.vhdelaboratesource timing.tclsynthesize -to_mappedreport power >___add64__--00_C.powerreport area >___add64__--00_C.areareport timing >___add64__--00_C.timingexit
One more time. Problem is not in RC script or in way how you start RC.
Problem is in shell script that runs RC.
Due to bug in TCSH (not RC) - you need to don't have any space before any command within foreach cycle.
Please see attached script - it works. Just rename it to run.csh and add execution rights
Thank you so much for your help,
I got another small problem, so please can you give some tips?
When i go to run the script to synthesize many cores if it finds a bug, the synthesize will stuck, therefore i need to type manually "exit" to get in track again, so can you give me some tips to avoid this problem please?
Thank you so much in advance
If you are talking about script bugs then just add -E switch to RC arguments. It will make RC exit immediately if it will got error in a script.
Thnak yuo so much :)
