You can utilize the doxygen docs 
(http://llvm.org/doxygen/hierarchy.html) to find which methods of 
classes give you the information you want.

For example, you can look up the PointerType class and see the methods 
it provides.  One of its methods returns the type it contains (I think 
it's getContainedType() or something like that; I don't recall the name 
exactly, but you can use doxygen to find it).
