Hi Andrzej,

For my two cents, I have a mild preference for -emit-fir.  When I see -emit-mlir I think it implies that only the standard dialect will be present (i.e. no fir in there).  That could just be me though.  Like I said, mine is a mild preference and switching wouldn't cause me much issue.

    We have recently started working on adding code-gen support in the Flang 
    driver. Our first PR is available on GitHub [1] and implements the 
    "parse tree --> MLIR" step.

    What should be the corresponding option in `flang-new`? `bbc` uses 
    `-emit-fir` [2], but `-emit-mlir` would probably be more accurate. 
    Indeed, currently the generated output uses multiple MLIR dialects 
    (rather than just FIR).

    Please comment either here or on GitHub.

    Thank you,
