Converting a checker into a plugin.

I want to make a few modifications to the GenericTaintChecker.cpp file . Since, building clang takes a lot of time . I wanted to convert that checker into a clang plugin as suggested by Artem since I don’t need to build clang everytime (I hope?).

I was going through how to build a plugin in here https://kevinaboos.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/clang-tutorial-part-iii-plugin-example/ . Should I write a similar makefile inside /build/…/clang/examples/GenericTaintChecker ( location of .cpp plugin file) ? But then , that makefile seems to build clang every time, so is there any use of this conversion. I am a newbie and I don’t really understand clang’s build system

Take stuff from examples/analyzer-plugin/ from clang source as an example :wink:
