      --deny-warnings
          Warnings will trigger a compiler error

      --use <SOLC_VERSION>
          Specify the solc version, or a path to a local solc, to build with.
          
          Valid values are in the format `x.y.z`, `solc:x.y.z` or `path/to/solc`.

      --offline
          Do not access the network.
          
          Missing solc versions will not be installed.

      --via-ir

      --silent
          Don't print anything on startup

      --ast
          Includes the AST as JSON in the compiler output

      --evm-version <VERSION>

      --optimizer-runs <RUNS>
          The number of optimizer runs

      --extra-output <SELECTOR>...
          Extra output to include in the contract's artifact.
          
          Example keys: evm.assembly, ewasm, ir, irOptimized, metadata
          
          For a full description, see

          Extra output to write to separate files.
          
          Valid values: metadata, ir, irOptimized, ewasm, evm.assembly

Project options:
  -o, --out <PATH>
          The path to the contract artifacts folder

      --revert-strings <REVERT>
          Revert string configuration.
          
          Possible values are "default", "strip" (remove), "debug" (Solidity-generated revert
          strings) and "verboseDebug"

      --build-info
          Generate build info files

      --build-info-path <PATH>
          Output path to directory that build info files will be written to

      --root <PATH>
          The project's root path.
          
          By default root of the Git repository, if in one, or the current working directory.

  -C, --contracts <PATH>
          The contracts source directory

  -R, --remappings <REMAPPINGS>
          The project's remappings

      --remappings-env <ENV>
          The project's remappings from the environment

      --cache-path <PATH>
          The path to the compiler cache

      --lib-paths <PATH>
          The path to the library folder

      --hardhat
          Use the Hardhat-style project layout.
          
          This is the same as using: `--contracts contracts --lib-paths node_modules`.
          
          [aliases: hh]

      --config-path <FILE>
          Path to the config file

Watch options:
  -w, --watch [<PATH>...]
          Watch the given files or directories for changes.
          
          If no paths are provided, the source and test directories of the project are watched.

      --no-restart
          Do not restart the command while it's still running

      --run-all
          Explicitly re-run all tests when a change is made.
          
          By default, only the tests of the last modified test file are executed.

      --watch-delay <DELAY>
          File update debounce delay.
          
          During the delay, incoming change events are accumulated and only once the delay has
          passed, is an action taken. Note that this does not mean a command will be started: if
          --no-restart is given and a command is already running, the outcome of the action will be
          to do nothing.
          
          Defaults to 50ms. Parses as decimal seconds by default, but using an integer with the `ms`
          suffix may be more convenient.
          
          When using --poll mode, you'll want a larger duration, or risk overloading disk I/O.

      --format-json
          Output the compilation errors in the json format. This is useful when you want to use the
          output in other tools
