> 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
