Regarding LLVM AST

Hi

I am trying to a write a standalone tool to compile llvm to x86 assembly.
For this purpose i wish to get a custom IR from llvm. The custom IR is
written in C. Would this require writing a new lexer and parser or are
there any libraries that can assist me.

Thanking You

What is special about your custom IR? Also, how does your tool differ from llc?
