Clang on StackOverflow

Hello everyone :slight_smile:

If you don’t know about it yet, StackOverflow is a Q&A website for enthusiasts programmers (which apparently both Chris Lattner and Howard Hinnant joined recently :wink: ). And there are some questions about CLang[1].

It turns out that they recently created a “wiki tag” which is a way to provide some information about a given tag (such as “clang”, in our case) and that I finally got the rights to edit it.

I went ahead and provided basic information (for both CLang and LLVM). It’s basically an excerpt of the overview web pages, and I used amples links to redirect the reader toward llvm.org for a complement of information.

If you have any remark either on the content or form, I’ll be happy to edit it. The goal is definitely not to mirror the official website, but about providing a good and enticing overview.

Matthieu.

PS: if you spot any spelling or grammar, please do let me know!

PPS: for those interested, it’s possible to subscribe to a rss feed for a specific tag. There appear to be 65 followers for clang already.

Hmm, the "Try it out in your browser!" link will use llvm-gcc, not clang.
