I was doing this as a functionality test, not as a replacement. My interest was making sure LLVM's configuration was proper and correct. -----Original Message----- From: haiku-development-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:haiku-development-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of André Braga Sent: Wednesday, October 14, 2009 3:09 PM To: haiku-development@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [haiku-development] Re: LLVM Em 14/10/2009, às 15:23, "Patrick Kelly" <kameo76890@xxxxxxxxx> escreveu: > I see...

Mind the fact that llvm-gcc compiled apps don't usually run as fast as "plain" GCC, since LLVM still doesn't implement a number of optimisation techniques. That's bound to change in time, however; just don't get overly frustrated when you face these less-than-stellar results. IMO for the time being the strength of LLVM is in providing the tools for building compilers and runtimes for dynamic languages, and not so much as a replacement of GCC for the sake of replacing it.
