[llvm-dev] dumb question about tblgen

Hi Peter,

I would recommend looking into the implementation of the matcher if you want to add more builtin types:

That being said, you can define your own types without having to go through that hassle.
E.g., from AArch64
def simm9 : Operand<i64>, ImmLeaf<i64, [{ return Imm >= -256 && Imm < 256; }]> {
  let ParserMatchClass = SImm9Operand;

Wouldn’t that work for you?
