print mini-c


ligo print mini-c SOURCE_FILE


This sub-command prints the source file in the Mini-C stage. Internally, it uses the build system to type and compile the contract. Compilation is applied after combination in the AST typed stage.


--display-format FORMAT the format that will be used by the CLI. Available formats are 'dev', 'json', and 'human-readable' (default). When human-readable lacks details (we are still tweaking it), please contact us and use another format in the meanwhile. (alias: --format)

--feature-infer-array-as-list Infer array as lists.

--library LIBS A comma-separated list of paths to directories where to search for files to be included by the preprocessor (alias: -l)

--no-color disable coloring in CLI output

--optimize ENTRY_POINT Apply Mini-C optimizations as if compiling ENTRY_POINT

--project-root PATH The path to root of the project.

--skip-analytics Avoid ligo analytics publication. Configurable with environment variable LIGO_SKIP_ANALYTICS too

--syntax SYNTAX the syntax that will be used. Currently supported syntaxes are "cameligo" and "jsligo". By default, the syntax is guessed from the extension (.mligo and .jsligo respectively). (alias: -s)

--warn-infinite-loop warn about infinite loop

--warn-unused-rec warn about unused recursion in a recursive function

-p PROTOCOL choose protocol's types/values pre-loaded into the LIGO environment (parisb). By default, the current protocol (parisb) will be used (alias: --protocol)

-help print this help text and exit (alias: -?)
