Building on windows

Hi all
   I cant find a clear answer to this anywhere in the release notes
or the mailing list. Sorry, if it is mentioned somewhere and I have
missed it. Can someone clarify as to if for LLVM 2.6, cmake is
optional.

http://llvm.org/docs/GettingStartedVS.html

The page says -
"This step is currently optional as LLVM does still come with a normal
Visual Studio solution file, but it is not always kept up-to-date and
will soon be deprecated in favor of the multi-platform generator
CMake."

thanks

I wouldn't be surprised if the hand-made VS project files shipped with
2.6 are out of date. So, in theory, you can use them but, in practice, I
recommend using cmake.
