      Rust uses LLVM.

      Rust didn't exist at the time, but anyway LLVM using OOP is way worse than its documentation problems and despite the Rust authors constantly telling rusttards to use data-oriented design, most are just writing C++ in Rust and ignoring them.

      kek nice bait but we know Rust couldnt exist without having been implemented with LLVM.

      Rust is developed on top of LLVM.

    the documentation IS complete dogshit, but luckily ChatGPT understands it well enough for me to bypass it.

        I already made my compiler with LLVM, It worked for me

      Well it was all funded by Apple, so what do you expect. Obfuscating the code and shitty documentation are part of the LLVM business model.

    I recall the Odin dev also had a rant about LLVM, and having borderline undocumented interface so the point that LLVM devs started recommending Odin as a reference to showcase the interface usage.

        Is it really that bad though? It doesn't look like there are cycles, it just a tree where some nodes have several parents.

            >QBE
            looks absoutely based
            I've been trying to understand a very early bison and the code is fricking awful. Meanwhile QBE has its own
            > * miniyacc - LALR(1) grammars for C
            All in one file, less than 1400 LOC and the code looks really nice compared to the GBlack person version.

      Its literally an Apple product, so what did you expect. They "open source" stuff to get the cred but then ensure its not readable or understandable to protect their essentially proprietary software.

      LLVM might as well be proprietary software being so opaque, which it essentially is. Its open "open source" in name.

    Is it not possible to make a better diagram? Surely we've come up with better things than graphviz or whatever they're using for layout.

      The graphics are useless. I really doubt anyone has ever learned anything worthwhile from these graphics.
