[LLVMdev] llvm 32bit with 64bit output?

At the moment i have set up cygwin using its llvm package to learn with and,
as i prefer developing in that unix style environment and using the command
line i will stick with that for a bit. Since you say a 32bit llvm can
generate 64bit binaries i also assume that they shouldnt require the cygwin
runtime (cygwin1.dll) but if it does i could at that point switch to mingw
with cygwin hopefully or if all else fails msvc.

Just so long as i can output the binaries i want, standalone 64bit binaries,
i dont mind what compiler toolchain or environment i use. However i do
prefer cygwin for now cause its easy and unix like unless it shoots me in
the foot with cygwin1.dll requirements.

Not sure if i will be able to make a compiler that will be able to have a
winmain to run the resulting binaries of my language without a console if
asked. But that is way way ahead of me haha, sorry. I digress.

Thanks Krysztof, it is very good to know finally so i can start working in
my little project.
