=head1 NAME

llvm-gcc - LLVM C front-end


B<llvm-gcc> [I<options>] I<filename>


The B<llvm-gcc> command is the LLVM C front end.  It is a modified
version of gcc that compiles C/ObjC programs into native objects, LLVM
bitcode or LLVM assembly language, depending upon the options.

By default, B<llvm-gcc> compiles to native objects just like GCC does. If the
B<-emit-llvm> and B<-c> options are given then it will generate LLVM bitcode files
instead. If B<-emit-llvm> and B<-S> are given, then it will generate LLVM

Being derived from the GNU Compiler Collection, B<llvm-gcc> has many
of gcc's features and accepts most of gcc's options.  It handles a
number of gcc's extensions to the C programming language.  See the gcc
documentation for details.

=head1 OPTIONS


=item B<--help>

Print a summary of command line options.

=item B<-o> I<filename>

Specify the output file to be I<filename>.

=item B<-I> I<directory>

Add a directory to the header file search path.  This option can be

=item B<-L> I<directory>

Add I<directory> to the library search path.  This option can be

=item B<-l>I<name>

Link in the library libI<name>.[bc | a | so].  This library should
be a bitcode library.

=item B<-emit-llvm>

Make the output be LLVM bitcode (with B<-c>) or assembly (with B<-s>) instead
of native object (or assembly).  If B<-emit-llvm> is given without either B<-c>
or B<-S> it has no effect.



If B<llvm-gcc> succeeds, it will exit with 0.  Otherwise, if an error
occurs, it will exit with a non-zero value.
