9.1i ISE - Unable to invoke Synplify Pro from Project Navigator; "expr: command not found" message occurs

Description

Keywords: Synthesis, 8.4.0, Linux

I cannot synthesize with Synplify Pro from Project Navigator on the Linux platform. When I perform synthesis, the following error occurs:

"Started: "Synthesize - Synplify Pro".
/ecad/synplify/fpga_84/bin/synplify_pro: line 1: expr: command not found
/ecad/synplify/fpga_84/bin/synplify_pro: line 1: sed: command not found
/ecad/synplify/fpga_84/bin/synplify_pro: line 1: sed: command not found
/ecad/synplify/fpga_84/bin/synplify_pro: line 1: expr: command not found
/ecad/synplify/fpga_84/bin/synplify_pro: line 1: expr: command not found
/ecad/synplify/fpga_84/bin/synplify_pro: line 11: /bin/config/platform_set: No such file or directory

Process "Synthesize - Synplify Pro" failed"

Solution

This problem can be caused by a double colon before the /bin directory in the PATH. To resolve this issue, remove the double colon in the path as in the following example:

Example

Incorrect:
PATH: ../bin::.:/usr/bin:/bin:/

Correct:
PATH: ../bin.:/usr/bin:/
