Rust bindings to LLVM's C API.
Add to your
[dependencies] llvm-sys = "*"
examples directory in this repository for API examples.
Most of the interfaces are not documented in these bindings. Refer to the LLVM documentation for more information, particularly the generated API documentation.
You will need LLVM (>= 3.6) and cmake (>= 2.6) installed on your system to
compile these bindings. The
llvm-config tool must be on PATH so the build
scripts can find it, and the LLVM cmake scripts must be somewhere cmake can find
Why not use
In many cases, the interfaces exposed by
librustc_llvm are sufficient for
code generation or whatever else you need to do with LLVM. When they are
not, however, you must link to LLVM yourself, which if mixed with rustc's
LLVM runs a significant risk of library version mismatches. Users should
take care not to mix uses of the two crates for this reason.
rustc_llvm is a private API for the Rust compiler and is subject
to change without notice. This crate provides a stable API.
