Dears All ,
I am not a C/C++ programmer and my knowledge about them is very weak .
In my life I did never write a “Makefile” and my knowledge about it is completely zero.
I want to learn Clang and LLVM as much as possible , mostly because I want to write a Pascal front end for LLVM by using Clang compiler parts as much as possible .
For this reason and on message by Tom Stellard
[LLVMdev] 3.5.1 Release Schedule
“Below is the proposed release schedule for LLVM 3.5.1. As always,
we need testers, so if you are interested in helping with that, let
I wanted to download Release 3.5.0 and apply tests on it .
If I can do this I could also apply my experience to release candidates .
With respect to my experiences , a
developer uses an accustomed line of testing and may not cover all of the possibilities
which doing such a coverage is an impossible task . Another person not knowing the system very well may follow a different line and may discover some problems on this different line .
Therefore being ignorant about LLVM system is not so much detrimental for testing .
I had installed in Linux ( Fedora 20 x86_64 ) OS supplied Clang 3.4.10 and LLVM 3.4.10 .
Sometimes I am using Clang to compile small programs alongside with GCC 4.8.3 .
This is especially useful because sometimes one is detecting an error but another one is not .
Therefore during program development , using different compilers on the same program
is an excellent “code review” by a compiler as a “very high quality expert” .
I am sorry about being verbose but I wanted to be explicit as much as possible .
I have downloaded
into a directory …/www.llvm.org/3.5.0/ ( where … is the upper directories list ) .
I have decompressed them by using the Ark of KDE into the above directory .
The created directories are as follows :
