nmlc man page

NMLC — A compiler from NML code to NFO and/or GRF files.

Synopsis

nmlc [options] [file]

Options

-c

Crop extraneous transparent blue from real sprites.

-u

Save real sprites uncompressed to GRF files. This saves a lot of time during encoding but it's not recommended when creating a file for distribution since it makes the output file substantially bigger.

--grf=file

Write output in GRF format to <file>.

--nfo=file

Write output in NFO format to <file>.

--nml=file

Write output in NML format to <file>.

--output=file | -o file

Write output to <file>. The output type is detected from the extension of the filename. It must be one of nfo, nml or grf.

--md5=file

Write an md5sum of the resulting grf to <file>.

--debug | -d

Print a dump of the AST to stdout.

--version

Print programme's version number and exit.

--help | -h

Print usage information.

--stack | -s

Dump stack when an error occurs.

-M

Output a rule suitable for make describing the graphics dependencies of the main grf file (requires input file or --grf)

--MF=file

When used with -M, specifies a file to write the dependencies to

--MT=file

Target of the rule emitted by dependency generation (requires -M)

--custom-tags=file | -t file

Load custom tags from <file> [default: custom_tags.txt].

--lang-dir=dir | -l dir

Load language files from directory <dir> [default: lang].

--default-lang=file

The default language is stored in <file> [default: english.lng].

--sprites-dir=dir | -a dir

Store 32bpp sprites in directory <dir> [default: sprites].

--start-sprite=num

Set the first sprite number to write (do not use except when you output nfo that you want to include in other files).

--palette=palette | -p palette

Force nml to use the palette <pal> [default: ANY]. Valid values are 'DOS', 'WIN', 'ANY'.

--quiet

Disable all warnings. Errors will be printed normally.

--cache-dir=dir

Cache files are stored in directory <dir> [default: .nmlcache].

--clear-orphaned

Remove unused / orphaned items from cache files.

--verbosity=level

Set the verbosity level for informational output [default: 3, max: 4].
