Readme for llvm-

Haskell LLVM bindings

This package provides Haskell bindings for the popular LLVM compiler infrastructure project.


By default, when you run cabal install, the Haskell bindings will be configured to look for LLVM in /usr/local.

If you have LLVM installed in a different location, e.g. /usr, you can tell the configure script where to find it as follows:

cabal install --configure-option=--with-llvm-prefix=/usr

Package status - what to expect

This package is still under development.

The high level bindings are currently incomplete, so there are some limits on what you can do. Adding new functions is generally easy, though, so don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

The high level interface is mostly safe, but the type system cannot protect against everything that can go wrong, so take care. And, of course, there's no way to guarantee anything about the generated code.
