I'm new here.  I would like to know about the Clang front end architecture.
Is the front end parser hand coded recursive descent?  Is it generated by 
or what?

I have many years of experience building higher-performance compiler
development tools, faster than flex and Bison.  If it's possible to make the 
front-end faster, I might like to get involved and contribute to its 

Let me know if there is any interest and who to contact.  There was no
contact information on the LLVM website and most of the developer links
were broken.
