Is there a way of working back from the critical path in the timing report from OpenSTA to the names of the nets in the RTL?

the
startPoint
and
EndPoint
nets are specified in the timing report, i.e.:
Copy code
Startpoint: _643_ (rising edge-triggered flip-flop clocked by clk)
Endpoint: _644_ (rising edge-triggered flip-flop clocked by clk)
Those reflect net names from the GL.

thanks Amr, don't know why I didn't see that

in this example for max, I can see the final point is io_out[16]
so to increase my clock frequency I have to work back from there to the first flip flop?

@Matt Venn: As far as I understand, yes that is true
