I'm currently implementing some optimization passes for LLVM and I
came across a problem. I'm new to LLVM so if this question has been
asked before please kindly tell me where can I find the answer.
There are 2 types of AllocationInst - Alloca and Malloc. But most of
the time from the compiled byte code I can only find the Alloca
statement (actually I never come across a single Malloc statement). the
function "malloc" is called tho. Does anybody know when will a
"MallocInst" be generated? Thanks heaps.
