I was able to build llvm and clang using VS Studio 8 under Windows. I do not understand how CMake works as a VS Studio 8 utility, but the ALL_BUILD project built everything, including clang, with no errors ( but there were warnings ).
There is no explanation about running clang tests although the web page says:
"Try it out (assuming you added llvm/debug/bin to your path). (See the running examples from above.)"
I see no running examples above.
I do see a number of clang test projects in the VS8 solution. When I tried building the "clang-c++tests" project but with a slew of errors. But since I do not understand how CMake works as a VS8 tool, I can hardly tell what these errors are all about. Any ideas ?
If you are using other tools to test clang, there should be some explanation how this works. Needless to say I am not a big fan of having to learn other technologies ( CMake in this case ) just to run C++ tests. But I do understand the necessity depending on the situation.
