glibc to LLVM port

Hi guys,

  on the webpages of your project i have found, that you are
trying to port glibc to LLVM (sounds interesting). I am student of Faculty
of Informatics in Brno, and currently i am trying to search a theme for my
diploma thesis. Do you think that this one could have the scope to
cover (serve) as the diploma work.

Thanks

Regards

While porting glibc would be interesting and of interest to LLVM, its up to your advisor/thesis committee to determine if its enough for a diploma. Typically universities want something that is "researchy" (new or novel) as a basis for your thesis. It varies a lot though... so I would approach them with your idea and see what they say.

LLVM would really benefit from this work or any of the other projects listed on our website. So there should be some project that makes your advisor/university happy and will allow you to work with LLVM.

Another potentially interesting source of ideas is to look at what other people have done, and see if there are ways to extend it:
