The Parabix with LLVM Project

This project investigates the use of LLVM as a back end for Parabix technologies.

Working with LLVM Tools

Some demos of LLVM tools in action.

Subprojects

Architecture Independent IDISA Libraries

Meng Lin is looking at creating architecture independent IDISA libraries, see: source:trunk/libgen/llvm_header

Is it possible to have LLVM directly support all power-of-2 types directly in the code generation system?

Complete Power-of-2 Integer/Vector? Support

ShuffleVector

The ShuffleVector project investigates systematic support of the LLVM shufflevector operation, and optimized support in the case of various patterns for shuffle masks as compile-time constants.

SSE2 Hoisting

The SSE2 Hoisting project investigates the raising of SSE2 intrinsic operations into generic LLVM IR operations, thereby creating the possibility of executing SSE2 code on different architectures.

LLVM Reading

Information on Extending LLVM to add new intrinsics, SelectionDAG nodes, instructions and types outlines the steps necessary to start working with the compiler on new facilities.

The LLVM Target Independent Code Generator is the key document describing the inner workings of code generation for various platforms.

Issues

The I2Result demo shows a problem with i2 results.
