  Description     : LLVM (Low Level Virtual Machine) compiler for C/C++

    LLVM (Low Level Virtual Machine) is a compiler framework and code
    representation designed to support transparent, lifelong program
    analysis and transformation by providing high-level information
    to compiler transformations at compile-time, link-time, run-time,
    and in idle time between runs.  LLVM defines a common, low-level
    code representation in Static Single Assignment (SSA) form, with
    several novel features: a simple, language-independent type-system
    that exposes the primitives commonly used to implement high-level
    language features; an instruction for typed address arithmetic;
    and a simple mechanism that can be used to implement the exception
    handling features of high-level languages (and setjmp/longjmp in C)
    uniformly and efficiently.
