The control file originated for the workstation version (Xilinx Solution 7634) of the XPLA compiler and fitter where there is no GUI for setting compiler and fitter options. Therefore the format of the control file allows for three sections, the command section, the property section, and the pin assignment section. For use with XPLA Professional, it is recommended that the control file only contain the property section and that compiler and fitter options are set through the GUI. Pin assignments can be set by the Pin Editor or in the pin assignment file (*.PAF).
The property section of the control file is denoted by [property]. The table below describes the XPLA Properties.
Comments in a control file are designated with "#". An example control file is shown below:
