[cfe-dev] From libtooling to LLVM IR?

Hi all,

So I managed to get something together from different bits available of

    llvm::LLVMContext context;

    std::unique_ptr<clang::CodeGenAction> action = std::make_unique<clang::

    clang::tooling::runToolOnCode/*WithArgs*/(action.get(), fullfile);

    std::unique_ptr<llvm::Module> module = action->takeModule();




    llvm::EngineBuilder builder(std::move(module));




    return reinterpret_cast<Function>(EE->getFunctionAddress(function));

Unfortunately, when calling builder.create, there is an ASAN error:

==18530==ERROR: AddressSanitizer: SEGV on unknown address 0x0000000000d8
(pc 0x0001114da737 bp 0x7ffee62a2530 sp 0x7ffee62a2510 T0)

==18530==The signal is caused by a READ memory access.

==18530==Hint: address points to the zero page.

    #0 0x1114da736 in std::__1::basic_string<char,
std::__1::char_traits<char>, std::__1::allocator<char>
>::basic_string(std::__1::basic_string<char, std::__1::char_traits<char>,
std::__1::allocator<char> > const&) (libc++.1.dylib:x86_64+0x3e736)

    #1 0x10a43446c in llvm::Twine::str() const

    #2 0x10a42ef9e in llvm::Triple::Triple(llvm::Twine const&)

    #3 0x109f320cc in llvm::EngineBuilder::create(llvm::TargetMachine*)

    #4 0x109a4b614 in llvm::EngineBuilder::create() ExecutionEngine.h:659

I suppose there is one bit missing in the native target initialization, but
can't find any relavant pointer online.
Does anyone have a clue?
