I am using Conformal version 16.1 to run rule checks and fix the issues. I am able to successfully read the design, and see the issues using "report rule check" command. I am also able to waive the occurrence by going to the HDL Rule Manager, right clicking the rule and clicking "waive Occurrence" . I want to save these waived occurrence for the future so that I do not have to deal with these in the future versions of my design. I can see there is a -WAIved switch in the "report rule check" command but the tool throws an error that the option is unknown. It happens for [-NOHidden | -HIDden | -WAIved | -NOWaived] switches only. The same can be seen if I try to use "write rule check" command to write the -WAIved issues and it complains that it is an unknown option. Please help what to do, either the help below is not correct, or I am not using it right. I have tried the exact case as it states below and I also tried small letters and capital letters but not help. I also tried TCL Mode using tclmode command and (report_rule_check with -waived parameter) but that fails aswell. I want to be able to waive issues, save them and apply it to the future version of designs to analyze only new problems. I tried the "man report rule check" and the output is written below.
SETUP> man report rule check// Command: man report rule check
REPort RUle Check [-All | -MODIfied | -RTL | -MODeling | -SDC | -LP | -CPF | -1801 | <rule_name* ...> [-SETTING] ] [-File <filename> [<linenumber>] ] [-FILTER <filter_expression> [-REGEXP]] [-FILTERED_BY <filter_name*>] [-ATTRibutes] [-MODUle <module_name>] [ | -Design | -Library] [-SUmmary |-Verbose | -OVERVIEW] [-STATUS < ALL | FAIL | PASS | IGNORED | NOT-APPLICABLE>] [-DEFAULT_SEVERITY] [-Ignore] [-Note] [-Warning] [-Error] [-CATegory [-XML <filename>]] [-LIMit [<natural_number>]] [-NOHidden | -HIDden | -COMplete | -FILTERED_out | -NOFILTERED_out | -WAIved | -NOWaived] [-HELP] [-OCCURRENCE_COUNT | -MAX_PRINT_COUNT <limit>] [-OLD_RULE_NAME] [-RULE_SEParation <num>] (Setup / Verify Mode)
I tried it from the GUI aswell, I opened the "Modeling Rule Manager" clicked the "File" to choose "write rule check" button and it had a drop-down selection to choose Occurrences to write and I choose "waived occurences, regargdless of filters". It ran a command (write rule check tmp.txt -waived -replace) in the console and failed to execute with an error "Error: Unknown argument: -waived". It certainly seems like a bug in the tool
