[llvm-dev] Function - replaceAllUsesWith

I could actually track down the cause of the problem:

llvm::ConstantInt::get(llvm::IntegerType::get(context, 64), 0xF),
The problem is the line where I receive the type of the function "puts", it will crash the application - when used as the parameter for "getPointerCast". I generated a new type, then the function didn't crashed anymore.
Is there a way to copy the value? I want to ensure to use the correct type...

Kind greetings

That's definitely the first thing you should fix. Preferably a debug build too. The only reason you should ever be debugging against a release build of LLVM is if you have a Heisenbug that doesn't happen otherwise. It's a horrible experience.

Even a release build can give you a backtrace if you attach a debugger, though as I've said I wouldn't normally bother.
