XST- Can XST synthesize projects whose files are in several folders, using a script or command line?


I have a project where the VHDL files are in different folders on my computer. Will XST be able to synthesize my project if I use the script to point to the different files?


The capability of compiling a design with the files located in different folders is available in XST, and can be achieved via the HDL Library Mapping File (.INI File).

This INI file could be specified directly from Synthesis Options or via the (-XSTHDPDIR) command line switch.

For more details on this command line switch, you can refer to the XST User Guide;
