Branch: CURRENT, Version: 8.0.1, Package name: clang-8.0.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) is:

A compilation strategy designed to enable effective program optimization across
the entire lifetime of a program. LLVM supports effective optimization at
compile time, link-time (particularly interprocedural), run-time and offline
(i.e., after software is installed), while remaining transparent to developers
and maintaining compatibility with existing build scripts.

A virtual instruction set - LLVM is a low-level object code representation that
uses simple RISC-like instructions, but provides rich, language-independent,
type information and dataflow (SSA) information about operands. This combination
enables sophisticated transformations on object code, while remaining
light-weight enough to be attached to the executable. This combination is key to
allowing link-time, run-time, and offline transformations.

A compiler infrastructure - LLVM is also a collection of source code that
implements the language and compilation strategy. The primary components of the
LLVM infrastructure are the C & C++ front-end, a link-time optimization
framework with a growing set of global and interprocedural analyses and
transformations, static back-ends for the X86, X86-64, PowerPC 32/64, ARM,
Thumb, IA-64 and SPARC architectures, a back-end which emits portable C
code, and a Just-In-Time compiler for X86, X86-64, PowerPC 32/64 processors.

clang: updated to 8.0.0

Clang 8.0.0:

Major New Features

* Clang supports use of a profile remapping file, which permits profile data \ 
captured for one version of a program to be applied when building another \ 
version where symbols have changed (for example, due to renaming a class or \ 
namespace). See the UsersManual for details.

* Clang has new options to initialize automatic variables with a pattern. The \ 
default is still that automatic variables are uninitialized. This isn’t meant \ 
to change the semantics of C and C++. Rather, it’s meant to be a last resort \ 
when programmers inadvertently have some undefined behavior in their code. These \ 
options aim to make undefined behavior hurt less, which security-minded people \ 
will be very happy about.

* Improvements to Clang’s diagnostics

Non-comprehensive list of changes in this release
* The experimental feature Pretokenized Headers (PTH) was removed in its \ 
entirely from Clang. The feature did not properly work with about 1/3 of the \ 
possible tokens available and was unmaintained.
* The internals of libc++ include directory detection on MacOS have changed. \ 
Instead of running a search based on the -resource-dir flag, the search is now \ 
based on the path of the compiler in the filesystem. The default behaviour \ 
should not change. However, if you override -resource-dir manually and rely on \ 
the old behaviour you will need to add appropriate compiler flags for finding \ 
the corresponding libc++ include directory.
* The integrated assembler is used now by default for all MIPS targets.
* Improved support for MIPS N32 ABI and MIPS R6 target triples.
* Clang now includes builtin functions for bitwise rotation of common value \ 
sizes, such as: __builtin_rotateleft32
* Improved optimization for the corresponding MSVC compatibility builtins such \ 
as _rotl().
