In that case, I guess just follow one of the llvm tool named 'llc' in
debugger. It will read llvm IR text file and generate assembly output.

If you need and overview of llvm components then lib/AsmParser reads llvm IR
text file. lib/Transforms optimizes the llvm IR. lib/CodeGen (along with
lib/Target) generates code from llvm IR which can be assembled and linked
using traditional assembler and linker respectively. Browsing through
various docs from http://llvm.org/docs/ will give definitely help you in
