[llvm-dev] [flang-dev] Difficulties with In-Tree Build of Flang

Hi Justin,

The flang script reads from standard input if a source file is not provided on the command line.  It appears to hang, but it’s really just waiting for input.

Flang isn’t hooked up to a code generator yet, so instead, by default, flang generates another Fortran source file and tries to compile that file with a different compiler.  The default is pgf90, but you can set the environment variable F18_FC to be a different compiler, like gfortran.

The flang script that you are running is just a throwaway driver until the real driver is ready.  That work is under development right now, but I don’t know when it will be ready.  Until then, we have this quirky script that lets us test flang semantics.

Hello all,

I am having a very difficult time getting in-tree builds of Flang working. My build commands are as follows:
cmake --build . --target check-flang
cmake --build . --target install

The build itself completes successfully, and all the Flang tests pass when using “check-flang”; however, “flang -v” and “flang -h” hang (it does not produce any output and has to be killed) and, when trying to compile a program, I get the error message “execvp(pgf90) failed: No such file or directory” (which fails even if I set F18_FC to gfortran or flang). I have tried building it on a few machines to no avail. I have tested both the Debug and MinSizeRel build types, used both Ninja and Unix Makefiles to build it, and tested a few different versions of GCC/G++, ultimately settling on v9.1.0. I am building from master of the llvm-project GitHub repository.

Any insights here would be appreciated, I am at a loss about what else to try here. Any other debugging suggestions or usage tips would be appreciated as well.
