> Hi,
> I've written an Eclipse plugin which adds an .ll file editor to Eclipse.
> It elevates the language support to nearly the same level that other
> programming languages enjoy under the Eclipse IDE, so it can be useful for
> anyone who manually reads or writes IR. Primary features are:
> * Syntax coloring which can deal with arbitrarily complex types (unlike
> what most other editors offer)
> * Context-aware content completion
> * Hovering over values, basic blocks and user-defined types shows their
> definition
> * ... and more, see attached PDF for a full feature list with screenshots
> It still has some bugs and there's a lot of room for improvement (e.g.
> adding type checking), but it is already usable and - in my opinion - a
> decent option if you want to edit IR by hand. I plan on releasing it to
> open-source, and I was wondering whether it's appropriate to commit it
> under utils/, next to other editor plugins. Thoughts?
