For now, my target is to work out how to build (a) working perl -- that is compatible with modules built for that perl using the normal mechanisms -- using clang.
A simple, standalone sandbox in which to play.
Then I can compare that to the standard build and see what if any improvements are available using LLVM as just another C compiler.
Then I can explore what differences/improvements are bought about by which of LLVMs many optimisation passes. Ie. which give the best bang for the buck.
Then move on to exploring the possibility of bolting LLVM JIT into the mix at runtime.
But baby steps. The clang docs are sparse and despite that they are targeting windows compatibility -- and have already added lots of support -- there are few windows people involved from who to curry expertise.
