  • Ask HN: LLVM vs. C

    So how does the LLVM C backend work then?

    One alternative worth mentioning, though, would be the LLVM C Backend maintained by the Julia community.

    If you drop "easily" and "human" (/s) from your requirements list, then the C backend for LLVM might work. Then you can choose any programming language you want that has LLVM 10-compatible frontend.

    If you really must have something that compiles in C (e.g. for a platform where you only have a C compiler) there's an LLVM backend that outputs C code: https://github.com/JuliaComputingOSS/llvm-cbe

    You can convert llvm bitcode to C and then use C compiler, there is such project https://github.com/JuliaComputingOSS/llvm-cbe .
  • lipstick: a Rust-like syntax frontend for C
    7 projects | /r/rust | 17 Jan 2022
    I'm really surprised that the LLVM C backends have continually been resurrected then abandoned over the years. It's a good solution to this sort of thing and would enable a lot of cool stuff like Rust to weird embedded platforms. The most recent one is the Julia backend: https://github.com/JuliaComputingOSS/llvm-cbe

    Well IMO it can definitely be rewritten in Julia, and to an easier degree than python since Julia allows hooking into the compiler pipeline at many areas of the stack. It's lispy an built from the ground up for codegen, with libraries like (https://github.com/JuliaSymbolics/Metatheory.jl) that provide high level pattern matching with e-graphs. The question is whether it's worth your time to learn Julia to do so.

    You could also do it at the LLVM level: https://github.com/JuliaComputingOSS/llvm-cbe

    For interesting takes on that, you can see https://github.com/JuliaLinearAlgebra/Octavian.jl which relies on loopvectorization.jl to do transforms on Julia AST beyond what LLVM does. Because of that, Octavian.jl beats openblas on many linalg benchmarks

  • Writing a SQLite clone from scratch in C

    You can try your luck with the "resurrected" C backend: https://github.com/JuliaComputingOSS/llvm-cbe

    I don't understand why I see so many requests for LLVM-based languages to change around their backend or IR, that seems to be a huge amount of work for comparatively little benefit. The correct thing to do there is to just add support for those to LLVM.
