Synopsys FPGA Compiler: Error code "VE-0" from analyze command in dc_shell

Description

Keywords: analyze, synopsys, dc_shell
Urgency: standard
General description:
When a source design file is prepared on a PC (using a PC-based text editor) or is detached from an email message on a PC-based email system, the file contains carriage-return characters that are incompatible with the Synopsys parser. If you try to analyze the file using dc_shell on a UNIX workstation, the analyze command produces the following error, typically referencing line 1:

(File: mydesign.v Line: 1)
(VE-0)

This occurs on FPGA Compiler and Design Compiler.

Solution

Convert the file using the dos2unix command before running the analyze command.
