Hi,recently i created the aur package llvm-amdgpu-svn and am now looking into adding the svn clang, clang-analyzer and llvm-ocaml code also.Since compiling clang requires the llvm source code to be present, it makes sense to use a split package for this, like the official llvm package.This page has the build instructions for clang : http://clang.llvm.org/get_started.htmlIn short i need
So I am a new linux user and new to programming, and I wanted to learn some of the C style languages. One of the online courses that I'm taking provides me a vm environment with clang istalled and configured to help students such as myself. Since I already have a Linux Mint 17 installation I thought I'd go ahead and install the llvm infrastructure myself using apt.
Phoronix: LLVM Clang 3.5 Brings Some Compiler Performance Improvements
If all goes well, LLVM 3.5 will be released today. While we have already delivered some LLVM/Clang benchmarks of the 3.5 SVN code, over the days ahead we will be delivering more benchmarks of the updated compiler stack -- including looking at its performance against the in-development GCC 5.0.
Phoronix: GCC vs. LLVM Clang Is Mixed On The Ivy Bridge Extreme
Our latest Linux benchmarks from the Intel Core i7 4960X Ivy Bridge Extreme Edition processor are compiler tests on this $1000 USD processor. The last two stable releases of GCC and LLVM's Clang C/C++ compilers were compared: GCC 4.7.2, GCC 4.8.1, LLVM Clang 3.2, and LLVM Clang 3.3.
I installed clang to compare its use with g++ (gcc) for some C++ programs; as in, I compared compilation time, error feedback, etc,. for the same programs. I did this mainly for the official LLVM tutorial (implementing a compiler using LLVM).
At one point, I needed to install the LLVM libraries (v. 2.9.), while before I had only downloaded clang.
