In MLIR, How to create a basic block for linalg.generic in python binding?

I can create a linalg.generic op in python binding. For example,

linalg.GenericOp([tensor_type], [op1], [op2],
                ir.ArrayAttr.get([ir.AffineMapAttr.get(ir.AffineMap.get_permutation([0, 1])),
                   ir.AffineMapAttr.get(ir.AffineMap.get_permutation([0, 1]))]),
%3 = "linalg.generic"(%1, %2) ({
}) {indexing_maps = [affine_map<(d0, d1) -> (d0, d1)>, affine_map<(d0, d1) -> (d0, d1)>], iterator_types = ["parallel", "parallel"], operand_segment_sizes = array<i32: 1, 1>} : (tensor<1x13xf32>, tensor<1x13xf32>) -> tensor<1x13xf32>

But in this op, I can’t create a basic block

I want to get a op like this, it has a ‘^bb0’ in its body

linalg.generic #matmul_trait
  ins(%A, %B : memref<?x?xf32, stride_specification>,
               memref<?x?xf32, stride_specification>)
  outs(%C : memref<?x?xf32, stride_specification>)
  {other-optional-attributes} {
  ^bb0(%a: f32, %b: f32, %c: f32) :
    %d = arith.mulf %a, %b: f32
    %e = arith.addf %c, %d: f32
    linalg.yield %e : f32

How can I get this in python binding?

Thank you for your answer!

I think you should be able to do something like this:

generic_op = linalg.GenericOp(...)
body = generic_op.region.blocks[0]

where in the append call you pass in whatever operation you want to append to the body.

You can also use InsertionPoint which is a cleaner way to append multiple ops to the body.

Finally, have you seen the linalg OpDSL? I’m not too familiar with it myself but from the documentation it seems to make it easier to create linalg ops.
