cfrontend/src/configure

Hi all,

subj has the first line:
#! /usr/dcs/software/supported/bin/bash

I think we could be more liberalistic :slight_smile:

best regards,

#! /usr/dcs/software/supported/bin/bash

Hi,

This anomaly is noted in the documentation for building the C front-end
(http://llvm.cs.uiuc.edu/docs/CFEBuildInstrs.html); in step 4 it advises
you to edit src/configure and "change the first line (starting w/ #!) to
contain the correct full pathname of sh."

We do provide binaries of the C front-end. Anyone who can should use
these binaries. Configuring and building the C front-end is harder than
it might look.

That said, I will try to figure out why Chris made this use bash in the
first place; thanks for reminding me to do so. I don't see any particular
need for it.

Take care,
-Brian Gaeke

I got the links to the proper doc from Chris already. But it would be
nice to have the INSTALL/BUILD docs either in the same package or at
least at the same download page :slight_smile:

The file was in the release 1.0 tarball, it just wasn't linked to from
the web docs page. That's been fixed:
