General Description:
When I try to create PROM .HEX files with "swap bits" checked, iMPACT reports the following error message:

"ERROR:Bitstream:44 - PromGen option -b (Disable Byte Mirroring) specified for serial PROM 'prom'. This option should not be used if the PROM file is to be used to program any PROM."
