CodeQL documentation

query format

Synopsis

codeql query format [--output=<file>] [--in-place] [--backup=<ext>] <options>... [--] <file>...

Description

Autoformat QL source code.

Options

<file>...

One or more .ql or .qll source files to autoformat. A dash can be speficied to read from standard input.

-o, --output=<file>

Write the formatted QL code to this file instead of the standard output stream. Must not be given if there is more than one input.

-i, --[no-]in-place

Overwrite each input file with a formatted version of its content.

--[no-]check-only

Instead of writing output, exit with status 1 if any input files differ from their correct formatting. A message telling which files differed will be printed to standard error unless you also give -qq.

-b, --backup=<ext>

When writing a file that already exists, rename the existing file to a backup by appending this extension to its name. If the backup file already exists, it will be silently deleted.

--no-syntax-errors

If an input file is not syntactically correct QL, pretend that it is already correctly formatted. (Usually such a file causes the command to terminate with an error message).

Common options

-h, --help

Show this help text.

-J=<opt>

[Advanced] Give option to the JVM running the command.

(Beware that options containing spaces will not be handled correctly.)

-v, --verbose

Incrementally increase the number of progress messages printed.

-q, --quiet

Incrementally decrease the number of progress messages printed.

--verbosity=<level>

[Advanced] Explicitly set the verbosity level to one of errors, warnings, progress, progress+, progress++, progress+++. Overrides -v and -q.

--logdir=<dir>

[Advanced] Write detailed logs to one or more files in the given directory, with generated names that include timestamps and the name of the running subcommand.

(To write a log file with a name you have full control over, instead give --log-to-stderr and redirect stderr as desired.)
