Include LLVM tools

Reported by: dterei Owned by: dons
Priority: major Milestone: Blue Sky
Component: Platform Keywords:

Description

It would be great if LLVM was included with the Haskell Platform so that the LLVM backend could be used out of the box.

  • milestone changed from 2011.x.0.0 to Blue Sky

At this point, HP doesn't include any compilation or linking tools. Including LLVM would be a pretty large undertaking.

Including LLVM would be a pretty large undertaking.

We only need to include a single executable - llc (and maybe also opt). One potential problem is that the user may have already installed LLVM separately, so we should be careful not to shadow the system llc.

Changed 22 months ago by refold

For the 2012.4.0.0 release I'll be including opt and llc with the Windows installer. I was able to compile a helloworld program with -fllvm that way. Please tell me if something else is needed.
