Include LLVM tools

Reported by: dterei Owned by: dons

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 2 years 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.
