LLVM is an abbreviation of "Low Level Virtual Machine"; LLVM is:

  • A compilation strategy
  • A virtual instruction set
  • A compiler infrastructure

It is developed by the University of Illinois. It is implemented on many platforms, amongst others the iPhone.

You can use this from a Haskell program using the Haskell package llvm. There is

Additional stuff

  • llvm-extra provides high-level control structures (ifThenElse, whileLoop, Maybe), vector instructions, automatic adaption to target specific extensions

Applications
