If you are using a released version of LLVM, see the download page to find your documentation.

The LLVM compiler infrastructure supports a wide range of projects, from industrial strength compilers to specialized JIT applications to small research projects.

Similarly, documentation is broken down into several high-level groupings targeted at different audiences:

  • Design & Overview

    Several introductory papers and presentations are available at :ref:`design_and_overview`.

  • Publications

    The list of publications based on LLVM.

  • User Guides

    Those new to the LLVM system should first vist the :ref:`userguides`.

    NOTE: If you are a user who is only interested in using LLVM-based compilers, you should look into Clang or DragonEgg instead. The documentation here is intended for users who have a need to work with the intermediate LLVM representation.

  • API Clients

    Developers of applications which use LLVM as a library should visit the :ref:`programming`.

  • Subsystems

    API clients and LLVM developers may be interested in the :ref:`subsystems` documentation.

  • Development Process

    Additional documentation on the LLVM project can be found at :ref:`development_process`.

  • Mailing Lists

    For more information, consider consulting the LLVM :ref:`mailing_lists`.
