Dear LLVM Team
I am looking for a llvm beasede compiler nad dont want to use GCC or any other based compiler. I have installed the clang++ and LLVM by following instruction from page http://clang.llvm.org/get_started.html

I want to use LLVM based compiler for making some changes in ANSI C compiler for a project. My goal is to use LLVM compiler so that compilation process becomes fast.

Could please tell me that do I need to use some other compiler or by following the above mentioned instruction I have installed LLVM based compiler. As Clang++ is just a front end and uses other compiler in backend. So is it a LLVM based compiler or GCC based compiler?
And is ther any way that I can check which compiler Clang++ is using?

Thanks and Regards
