  Description     : A C language family frontend for LLVM

The Clang project is a new C, C++, Objective C and Objective C++
front-end for the LLVM  compiler.  The end-user features of clang are
fast compiles and low memory use, expressive diagnostics, and GCC
compatibility.  It has a modular library based architecture, supports
diverse clients (refactoring, static analysis, code generation, etc.)
and allows tight integration with IDEs.  Internally, clang has a single
unified parser for C, Objective C, C++, and Objective C++.
Clang is still in early development stages and good for source analysis
or source-to-source transformation tools.  It is not yet ready for use
as a drop in C compiler.  It currently has pretty good parsing and
semantic analysis support for C and Objective-C.  C++ support is still
very early.
