Default Custom compilation step in Quartus

Hi y'all :

We create our .mif files by running a custom analysis program on a set of
data files.

I'd like to include this in the compile process.

Whilst I can find interfaces to various EDA tools, I can't find a "just run
this program prior to compilation" option

Is this possible ?

Thanks
Gary

No, but...
You can Synthesis the project from the command line.

Create a batch file.
a) run your mif creator.
b) run Quartus (-sh I believe)
c) run programmer

Note Quartus returns ErrorLevels unlike ISE. Read the Scripting manual (its new with 4.2?)

And document it, so that when it breaks someone else can fix it for you. ;D

Cheers
