3.x FPGA Express - Errors are reported when the "export_chip -bus_style" function is used in bracket format in the command line

Description

Keywords: FPGA Express, export_chip, bracket, command line

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use the "export_chip -bus_style" function in bracket format in the command line, errors are reported.

For example:
export_chip -bus_style "%s[%d:%d]"

Solution

A problem with Tcl prevents it from considering the string within the double quotation marks of the "export_chip -bus style function" in the command line because of the brackets.

To work around this problem, simply un-define the default interpretation by appending a backslash before the square brackets.

For example:
export_chip -bus_style "%s\[%d:%d\]"
