Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::sdc 1.5

Syntax get_clocks [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-nocase] [-nowarn]
 
[ <filter> ]
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-nocase Specifies the matching of node names to be case-insensitive
-nowarn Do not issue warnings messages about unmatched patterns
<filter> Valid destinations (string patterns are matched using Tcl string matching)
Description
Returns a collection of clocks in the design. When used as an argument
to another command, such as the -from or -to options of
set_multicycle_path, each node in the clock represents all nodes
driven by the clocks in the collection.

# The following multicycle constraint applies to all paths ending at registers
# driven by clk
set_multicycle_path -to [get_clocks clk] 2

The filter for the collection is a Tcl list of wildcards, and must
follow standard Tcl or Timing Analyzer-extension substitution rules.
See the help for use_timing_analyzer_style_escaping for details.
