XSCT Commands

The Xilinx® Software Command-Line tool allows you to create complete Xilinx SDK workspaces, investigate the hardware and software, debug and run the project, all from the command line.

XSCT commands are broadly classified into the following categories. The commands in each category are described subsequently.

  • Help for each of the commands can be viewed by running help <command> or <command> -help in the XSCT console. All the available XSCT commands can be listed by running help commands.
  • You can use Ctrl+C to terminate long running commands like fpga or elf download or for/while loops.
  • You can terminate XSCT by pressing Ctrl+C twice in succession.
  • Windows style paths are supported when the path is enclosed within curly brackets {}.
