2013.2 Vivado - The help of add_cells_to_pblock contains the incorrect example

Description

In Vivado Design Suite 2013.2, the help for add_cells_to_pblock has an incorrect example as shown:

%add_cells_to_pblock -help

create_pblock pb_cpuEngine
add_cells_to_pblock pb_cpuEngine [get_cells cpuEngine] -add_primitives -clear_locs

I open an example design (e.g., CPU synthesized) and open the synthesized design. After typing the example command in the Tcl console, the following error is issued:

ERROR: [Vivado 12-801] There are no primitives instances in the given list.

Solution

The correct example is given in Vivado Design Suite 2013.3 as follows:

create_pblock pb_cpuEngine
add_cells_to_pblock pb_cpuEngine [get_cells cpuEngine/*] -add_primitives -clear_locs
