    read_hdl fails to open rtl_list Reply

    I have a question on read_hdl on Encounter RTL compiler. It seems that it doesnt accept following code snippet

    read_hdl -verilog {$rtl_list}

    I created a run file to read in all the files for synthesis into the rtl_list. I can list all the elements in the rtl_list like

    a.v
    b.v
    ... z.v

    Still the rtl compiler complains VLOGPT-650.

    Thanks
    vinil

    Vinil,

    Here is a reply from Cadence engineering:

    ***********
    Hi Vinil,

    There are two syntax issues with the read_hdl command you've posted:
    1. -verilog is not an option to read_hdl. By default, read_hdl reads Verilog files, so no switch is necessary to specify Verilog input. Please do read_hdl -h to see the valid options
    2. In TCL, surrounding a variable with {} means to not expand that variable its values. As a result, the read_hdl command is looking for a file called $rtl_list, not looking for the files specified in $rtl_list.

    I think you will find that the following command will accomplish what you need:
    read_hdl $rtl_list

    Thank you for your post.
