4.1i XFLOW - Control files (.opt, .flw) in the current directory are not used


Keywords: XFLOW, control files, balanced.opt, fast_runtime.opt, high_effort.opt, area.opt, speed.opt, fpga.flw, cpld.flw, fsim.flw, working directory, current directory

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
XFLOW does not use control files (.opt, .flw) located in the current directory if the "-wd" option is used to specify a working directory that is different from the current directory.


XFLOW uses the following search order when looking for the .opt and .flw control files:

1. Working directory
2. Directories specified by $XFLOWPATH environment variable
3. Directories specified by $MYXILINX environment variable
4. Directories specified by $XILINX environment variable

The working directory is defined by the "-wd" option specified on the XFLOW command line. If the "-wd" option is not specified, the default for the working directory is the current directory.

To ensure that XFLOW locates and uses particular control files, verify that the control files are located within the search path and are not superseded by other control files of the same name.
