I'm starting work on a new language (not going to make excuses for
that), and my initial plan was to use LLVM as backend.
Looking at the Kaleidoscope tutorial, I found that LLVM-as-backend makes
no attempt at supporting the frontend side (d'oh); in particular, it
doesn't offern patterns or best practices for organizing things like
input stream handling, line/column number bookkeeping, or error message
Would it make sense to turn to clang for that?
If yes, where should I start reading?
