How to run scripts without loading design?


I tried to open Active-HDL and run a script without manually loading a design. I cannot make it work. Can you help?


Active-HDL requires a design to be loaded before compilation or simulation can be executed. In order for your script to run without you manually loading a design, you need to add following commands:


#will create a new design with the specified name
createdesign [-flow] <design_name> <path> 
#if the design already exists this command will load it.
opendesign [-a] [-preserve] <design_name> 

So, if you already have a design you need to add “opendesign” command after “set worklib work” command.
