[llvm-dev] How to get the function's parameters value at runtime?

Hi all,
I'm still experimenting with the Interpreter class and in this case I would
like to know a couple of things if possible. Suppose that "instruction" is
a StoreInst & that is part of a function called sum with the following
prototype: int sum(int a, int b);. During the execution sum is called
passing two integer (e.g. 1,2). When the "instruction" is about to be
interpreted how can I get the value of a and b? I access to the first
argument using Argument *argument = I.getFunction()->arg_begin(), is it the
proper way?

The relevant IR is:

%2 = call i32 @sum(i32 1, i32 2)
%3 = alloca i32, align 4
%4 = alloca i32, align 4
%5 = alloca i32, align 4
store i32 %0, i32* %3, align 4

In addition, if I call instruction.getValueOperand() and on the result I
call ->dump() I can see i32 %0 as expected but what kind of instruction is
returned by getValueOperand()? In the end I would like to understand how to
identify if the %0 is a parameter or not.

Thanks a lot
