[LLVMdev] writing llvm ir not in c++

You can write LLVM IR by hand as far as that is concerned ...

If you mean generating IR automatically from a program written in some
language you need to use a compiler frontend based on LLVM and emit IR
instead of going further with the compilation.
Most of the frontends for LLVM target C like languages, but with Dragonegg
you could use some of the GCC frontends to start from something else.

I know that Dragonegg supports Go and not so complex java programs
