13.3 PlanAhead - [][][][]... shown during implementation run load

Description

][][][][][][.... shown during implementation run load, or project close depending on platform

When Iload the implemented design in PlanAhead tool,

On windows I get:

start_gui
starting gui ...
][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][
][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][...

On Linux this is not displayed untilI exit PlanAhead:
][][][][][][][][][][][INFO: [PlanAhead-261] Exiting PlanAhead...

Is this normal?

Solution

The extra characters have been seen in PlanAhead 13.3 when an NCD file in the design contains instance names beginning with "][". Example: "][my_inst"

The xdl parser was not reading the instances correctly.

This issue has been fixed in PlanAhead 13.4
