- We need to make sure not to confuse F18 and legacy flang. If I
write/wrote flang, and I started on of those threads, I always mean
F18 which is "new flang", soon to be llvm/flang.
- With AST I meant whatever the parser + sema of F18 generates. To be
honest, I haven't looked to closely at what that is but I expected an
AST like structure to be present.
- flang = f18 does not have IR generation, that was what the thread was
about. Legacy flang has string based IR "printing".
- We should have this discussion on the flang list
(flang-dev at lists.llvm.org).
