Hi, I've been spending hours looking for example language -> IR
translations so I can learn more about the IR. I also looked for a
simple-to-setup project that would give the samples. Finally, I
downloaded list archives (are they visible to google?) and scanned.
Found -emit-llvm option on llvm-gcc. This is your friend. It answers
"how do I represent x in IR?". E.g.,
/usr/local/llvm-gcc4.2-2.2-x86-darwin8/bin/llvm-gcc -emit-llvm -S -c
play.s says it all. Probably good for getting started doc.
