[LLVMdev] C/C++ interpreter...

   what would be needed to make a C/C++ interpreter using the LLVM 
libraries. We have in our project (http://root.cern.ch) a C/C++ interpreter 
(http://root.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/ROOT/CINT), but it has some limitations 
(the biggest being maintenance). I see there is a libLLVMInterpreter that 
can interpret the LLVM IR. Could this be used to interpret, or a starting 
point, to an real interpreter ?

Cheers, Fons.
