aid for getting started

Hi, I've been spending hours looking for example language -> IR translations so I can learn more about the IR. I also looked for a simple-to-setup project that would give the samples. Finally, I downloaded list archives (are they visible to google?) and scanned. Found -emit-llvm option on llvm-gcc. This is your friend. It answers "how do I represent x in IR?". E.g.,

/usr/local/llvm-gcc4.2-2.2-x86-darwin8/bin/llvm-gcc -emit-llvm -S -c play.c

play.s says it all. Probably good for getting started doc.

Hooray :slight_smile:
