LLVM Practice Exercises: Essential Techniques for Mastering the Framework

Here’s a short practice exercise to help you get familiar with using LLVM:

  1. Install LLVM on your computer if you haven’t already. You can download the latest version of LLVM from the LLVM website and follow the installation instructions provided.
  2. Write a simple C program that prompts the user to enter two integers and then calculates and prints their sum. Save this program as sum.c.
  3. Use the LLVM compiler to compile sum.c and produce an executable file called sum. Enter the following command in a terminal window:
pythonCopy codeclang sum.c -o sum
  1. Run the program by entering the following command in the terminal window:
pythonCopy code./sum
  1. Test the program by entering two integers at the prompts and verifying that the program correctly calculates and prints their sum.

Congratulations, you’ve just used LLVM to compile and run a simple C program! You can continue to practice with LLVM by trying more complex programs and exploring the various tools and libraries provided by the LLVM infrastructure.
