Emit C

Hello,

I am trying to emit C code from the module I just created. And this from LLVM-C.
If someone could give me a pointer on how to do this in llvm (with C++) I might be able to figure it out how to do it in LLVM-C or write my own LLVM-C wrapper for it.

Thank you,

Filip

Easy. LLVM has a backend for this. Just make like you're emitting code
as usual, except, when you tell LLVM which backend to use, you tell it
to use the "C Backend".

I am still having some trouble finding my way in the C++ files.
Could you give me a clearer direction?

Filip

If you have llvm IR then you can use 'llc' to generate c code. Try
$ llc <input_llvm_ir> -march=c -o /tmp/output.c

This C backend is implemented in llvm/lib/Target/CBackend

thanks

Is it possible that you can only reach the C Target through the TargetRegistry iterator ?
Is there an "easier" way to obtain one?
