13.1 PlanAhead - Write Results to File fails with ERROR: [HD-Tcl 103] Could not write to file

Description

Under Report Timing Advanced Tab, I enable the Write Results to File option and enter the desired name and path (by typing or browsing to the directory).

When I click OK, I see one of the following error messages, as a pop-up dialog and in the Tcl console.

  • ERROR: report_timing: too many positional options
  • ERROR: [HD-Tcl 103] Could not write to file 'C:Temp emplates est_report.txt'.

Examples:

report_timing -delay_type max -path_type full_clock_expanded -max_paths 10 -nworst 1 -sort_by slack -significant_digits 3 -input_pins -nets -results {results_2} -file C:\Temp\templates\test_report.txt -append
ERROR: [HD-Tcl 103] Could not write to file 'C:Temp emplates est_report.txt'.

report_timing -delay_type max -path_type full_clock_expanded -max_paths 10 -nworst 1 -sort_by slack -significant_digits 3 -input_pins -nets -results {results_2} -file C:\Documents and Settings\user1\Application Data\Xilinx\PlanAhead\test_report.txt" -append
ERROR: report_timing: too many positional options

Solution

The file name and directory path are not being properly escaped when sent to the Tcl command.

To work around this, a user can place curly brackets around the file path in the Command field at the bottom of the Report Timing window.

Example:

report_timing -delay_type max -path_type full_clock_expanded -max_paths 10 -nworst 1 -sort_by slack -significant_digits 3 -input_pins -nets -results {results_2} -file {C:\Temp\templates\test_report.txt} -append

This issue is scheduled to be fixed in ISE Design Suite 13.1.
