8.1i sp1 Xplorer - Xplorer script hangs on Windows system


On Windows system, Xplorer worked with ISE 8.1i (I.24). However after installing Service Pack 1(I.25), running this script results in the following output and hangs:

"'tee' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."


The xplorer.pl (version 2.36) with ISE 8.1i SP1 (I.25) adds line 137:

open (STDOUT, "| tee ${work_dir}/xplorer.log");

'tee' is build-in on UNIX systems, but other systems users need to install additional package for perl to get it working.

To work around this, modify %XILINX%/bin/nt/xplorer.pl by commenting out the line:

open (STDOUT, "| tee ${work_dir}/xplorer.log");

and uncommenting the two previous lines:

open(DEBUGFILE, ">${work_dir}/xplorer.log"); select(DEBUGFILE);
