Hi all,

Does anybody actually do LLVM/Clang development with VC Express?

Just to let you know that any bump in toolchain requirements also
affects tool developers (I maintain IWYU, based on Clang). I have
VS2012 via my employer, but the jury's still out on VS2013 adoption,
so I'm a bit worried about being left behind.

If LLVM and Clang can indeed be configured to use the compiler from VC
Express, this whole e-mail is moot, so I'd love to hear more about
such setups.
