Introduction to The LLVM Compiler System
Presented by Mr. Chris LATTNER on 4 Nov 2008 from 09:40 to 10:20
Track: 1. Computing Technology
This talk gives a high level introduction to the LLVM Compiler System (http://llvm.org/), which supports high performance compilation of C and C++ code, as well as adaptive runtime optimization and code generation. Using LLVM as a drop-in replacement for GCC offers several advantages, such as being able to optimize across files in your application, producing better generated code performance, and doing so with reduced compile times.
