llvm-d 2.0.0

D bindings for LLVM


To use this package, run the following command in your project's root directory:

Manual usage
Put the following dependency into your project's dependences section:

llvm-d

-Build Status

llvm-d provides bindings to LLVM's C API for the D programming language. It is designed to be linked dynamically against LLVM.

Usage

To use llvm-d you need only import it, after which all of LLVM's C API's functions should be available. For example:

import std.stdio;

import llvm;

void main(string[] args)
{
	static if((LLVMDVersion(3, 3, 0) <= LLVM_Version) && (LLVM_Version < LLVMDVersion(3, 5, 0)))
	{
		writefln("LLVM multithreading on? %s", cast(bool) LLVMIsMultithreaded());
		writefln("Turning it on"); LLVMStartMultithreaded();
		writefln("LLVM multithreading on? %s", cast(bool) LLVMIsMultithreaded());
		writefln("Turning it off"); LLVMStopMultithreaded();
		writefln("LLVM multithreading on? %s", cast(bool) LLVMIsMultithreaded());
	}
}

Note that a static if is used to ensure the function calls are only compiled in if llvm-d is set to compile for a viable LLVM version (the multithreaded functions where added to LLVM's C API in the 3.3 development cycle and removed in the 3.5 development cycle; thus they are only available in versions 3.3 and 3.4).

A more complex example showing how to create a jitted function calculating the fibonacci series can be seen at examples/fibonacci/fibonacci.d.

LLVM versions

The LLVM version to be used is selected by setting a conditional compilation version identifier. For DMD, this is the -version argument; for dub, the versions field.

The identifier to set the LLVM version is defined as LLVM_{MAJOR_VERSION}_{MINOR_VERSION}_{PATCH_VERSION}, so to get LLVM version 3.1.0 use LLVM_3_1_0.

Current supported versions are 3.1.0 - 3.9.1 and if no version is given at compile time, 3.9.1 will be assumed.

Documentation

llvm-d exposes C linkage functions, constants, and types with the same names as LLVM's C API. See the LLVM Doxygen pages for a reference.
