What does 'xforms' mean ? (context included in post)

I’m not sure about the meaning of the term xforms in the codebase :confused:

Does the term xforms deserve to be added to the LLVM Lexicon? It isn’t in there yet.

Thank you in advance :smile_cat:

I’m pretty sure it just means “transforms”, though I’m not completely certain of the etymology. They seem to come from very old code, even the newer instances look copy/paste/modified.

If any change is needed, I’d probably go in and edit the comments instead.

xforms = transforms (I’ve also see xlation = translation). It’s jargon, and a google search turns up the meaning fairly readily.
