Noob questions about setting up on Win32

I’d like to get LLVM up and running on my Win32 box, preferably from source. I had a look across the LLVM website, and I’m not yet entirely sure which bits I need and where in order to:

(*) build LLVM itself

(*) build programs with LLVM

I have a MingW32 setup on a WinXP machine; said machine also has latest VS2005 (and Orcas, for that matter) on it. What else do I need?

Hi Ted,

I suggest you do some reading on this:
http://llvm.org/docs/GettingStartedVS.html
http://llvm.org/docs/GettingStarted.html
http://llvm.org/docs/CFEBuildInstrs.html

Note many of us build on windows so it tends to bit rot from time to time. Patches welcome.

Reid.
