I have been testing with evm and I am not getting any output.

Code -

pragma solidity ^0.4.18;

contract d8 {

    function myBalance() pure public returns (uint) {
        return 880;


My asm is from here -

solc --asm d8.sol > d8.asm

Then I tried -

evm compile d8.asm

Not much happens (output is a blank line).

I tried various options and adding "run" at the end but nothing produced any output.

Has anyone any suggestions?


Solidity has an own workflow to deal with assembly. Refer to https://solidity.readthedocs.io/en/develop/assembly.html# and check the phases:

  1. Assembly
  2. Desugaring
  3. Opcode Stream
  4. Byte Stream

Output of phase 2 can be generated as follows: solc --asm

However, evm compile expects you to have phase 3.

e.g. check the code: https://github.com/IC3Hydra/Hydra/blob/master/submarine_sends/to_contract/clone_withdraw.easm
