Module documentation for 0.5.0.0

llvm-hs-pretty

Build Status Hackage

A pretty printer for llvm-hs-pure. Goal is to be able to pretty print a sufficiently large subset of the LLVM AST from pure Haskell without having to go through the C++ API.

Usage

There is a single function ppllvm that maps a LLVM.AST.Module to a Text.

import LLVM.AST
import LLVM.Pretty (ppllvm)

ppllvm :: Module -> Text

Individual LLVM elements (constants, instructions) can be printed using the the polymorphic ppll function for any LLVM structure that implements the PP typeclass.

Tests

# This is only necessary for running the test suite
sudo apt-get install llvm-dev-5.0

The test suite currently consists of round tripping a LLVM IR from correct IR outputted by the llc toolchain, parsing into llvm-general AST and then printing it back out and comparing it with the original textual form to see if the pretty printer faithfully preserves the structure. The sample modules are in tests/.

Using stack:

$ stack build
$ stack test

Using cabal:

$ cabal run
$ cabal run -- tests/simple.ll

If you’re using Nix then:

$ nix-shell
$ cabal run

Example

To try out the standalone example run:

$ stack repl
$ :load Example.hs
main

Consider the basic example LLVM module.

; ModuleID = 'example-llvm-module'

define i8 @f(i8 %x){
entry:
  ret i8 %x
}

Using the LLVM.AST we construct the type and feed it to the pretty printer.
