none (default)

Default: none.

Your choice of synthesis tool (from the Choose synthesis tool menu) sets the Synthesis command string. The content of the string is specific to the selected synthesis tool.

The default is a format string passed to fprintf to write the Cmd section of the synthesis script. The implicit argument, %s, is the file name of the entity or module. The command is iterated for each generated file.

To avoid issues when generating synthesis scripts for various tools, retain both format specifiers (%s).


To set this property, use the functions hdlset_param or makehdl. To view the property value, use the function hdlget_param.
