|Re: [cdt-dev] llvm build support on Windows|
I spent some time yesterday trying to familiarize myself with the code, but got confused with all the different variants of llvm + gcc + clang + mingw + cygwin. For some reason, I cannot get the CDT new project wizard to consider the LLVM toolchain to be "supported" on my machine, and it looks like it is the toolchain's "target platform" which is considered "not compatible". That was about as far as I got yesterday.
I've managed to get things to work on Linux, but do we have any idea about how much of this stuff is expected to work on Windows? One use-case I'd like to address is when the user just has LLVM+Clang installed (using LLVM:s own windows installer) and no
mingw/cygwin, and automatically detect the LLVM installation using the registry.
Getting lldb to work out-of-the-box would also be very nice.

+1. I also wonder about all the different LLVM combos. This should really be a clang integration.
BTW, with the new Core Build, I’m getting away with including clang as a GCC toolchain. Seems to be very comparable in every way. I wonder if that’s a simplification we can make for managed build too.
Anyway, as M-A said, any love here would be appreciated :).
