Simit is a new programming language designed to make it easy to write high-performance code to compute on sparse systems. For more information see simit-lang.org.
If you want to build LLVM yourself you can check it out using SVN:
svn co https://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm/branches/release_37 llvm3.7
then build it:
cd llvm3.7 mkdir build cd build cmake -DLLVM_ENABLE_TERMINFO=OFF -DLLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD="X86;NVPTX" -DLLVM_ENABLE_ASSERTIONS=ON -DLLVM_ENABLE_RTTI=ON -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. make -j8
then point Simit to it:
export LLVM_CONFIG=<path to llvm>/build/bin/llvm-config
To perform an out-of-tree build of Simit do:
cd <simit-directory> mkdir build cd build cmake .. make -j8
To run the test suite do (all tests should pass, but ignore disabled tests):
cd <simit-directory> ./build/bin/simit-test
To check a Simit program:
cd <simit-directory> ./build/bin/simit-check <simit-program>
To make the Simit bin directory part of your PATH:
cd <simit-directory> export PATH="$PATH:`pwd`/build/bin"
To build Simit's documentation:
cd <simit-directory> doxygen
This will create a doc directory containing HTML documentation. Open
doc/index.html in your browser.
