I see cwltool has an option '--print-dot', but it doesn't seem to print anything. I'm trying to use this with my workflow that works:

cwltool --print-dot bwa-mapping-workflow.cwl bwa-mapping-workflow-input.yml


cwltool --print-dot bwa-mapping-workflow.cwl

Is there a way to get a plot of the workflow?

It looks like DOT is printed to standard output (, so perhaps just redirect the output to a file and open that with GraphViz or another DOT-rendering utility.
