Haskell, compiler construction and LLVM

  • Apr 1, 2014 · 8:00 PM

LLVM (the low-level virtual machine; http://llvm.org/) is quite interesting for compiler writers, as it makes producing a high-quality backend for your language much easier. LLVM is also quite well supported in Haskell (I don't mean the GHC LLVM backend, but the various LLVM libraries on Hackage). In this meetup (which could be split into two or three parts), I'd propose to have a look at this excellent tutorial: http://www.stephendiehl.com/llvm/ It describes how to implement a simple programming language called Kaleidoscope in Haskell.

    Schön, dass wieder so viele beim Treffen waren.

    Ich habe den Code, den wir zusammen entwickelt haben, in ein Github-Repository gesteckt: https://github.com/kosmikus/kaleidoscope-regensburg

    Sorry, kaum Kommentare. Ist bis auf ein paar Layout-Änderungen 1:1 der Code vom Meetup. Fragen versuche ich natürlich zu beantworten. Ansonsten gibt's ja auch nach wie vor das Tutorium, auf dem das alles basiert: http://www.stephendiehl.com/llvm/

    Hi everyone.

    For those who've never been to Plan 9 before:

    At Plan 9, we're probably going to be in the separate room. When you arrive, go through the door on the right hand side of the passageway (whereas the main entrance is through the door on the left hand side).

    See you tomorrow.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
