[llvm-dev] What is the correct Targettripple for generating a X86 COFF-Files on windows?

Just got started and stuck at the same time. Working with the C-Api, i have
come to the point where i want to emit a binary file for my module. I
queried the X86-Target and called LLVMCreateTargetMachine this way:

>       LTarget := LLVMGetTargetFromName('x86');
>       LMachine := LLVMCreateTargetMachine(LTarget, 'i386-win32-msvc', nil,
> nil,  LLVMCodeGenLevelDefault, LLVMRelocDefault, LLVMCodeModelDefault);

A call to LLVMTargetMachineEmitToFile using LLVMObjectFile does output a
obj-file. But it seems it is an ELF-File. Looking through the code(and
looking into the Tripple.cpp) i am not sure what to do exactly for creating
a COFF-File.

Best regards
Alexander B.
