Pasting Windows Paths in Vivado

Published by at under coding

If you’re using Xilinx Vivado or another tool with a Tcl interpreter in Windows, sometimes you want to paste a path from the file system, for instance to¬†cd into a directory. Tcl treats backslashes as escape characters so just doing

cd c:\some\dir

Isn’t going to work. The easiest fix is to enclose your path with curly braces.

cd {c:\some\dir}
