4.2isp2, PAR - "FATAL_ERROR:Utilities:UtilArray.c:216:1.3 - Sort produced an unsorted list..."


Keywords: fatal, error, UtilArray, unsorted

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
PAR fails in the placer and reports the following error:

"FATAL_ERROR:Utilities:UtilArray.c:216:1.3 - Sort produced an unsorted list. Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and other online resources at http://support.xilinx.com"


This error occurs because the sort function used mixes up names such as "abc001" and "abc1" because it compares "001" to "1" and considers them to be equal.

This problem will be fixed in the 5.1i software, which is currently scheduled for release in September, 2002.

Meanwhile, work around the problem by avoiding the use of a naming convention in which numbers with leading zeros are used.
