tblgen — Target Description To C++ Code Generator

Synopsis

tblgen [options] [filename]

Description

tblgen translates from target description (.td) files into C++ code that can be included in the definition of an LLVM target library.  Most users of LLVM will not need to use this program.  It is only for assisting with writing an LLVM target backend.

The input and output of tblgen is beyond the scope of this short introduction; please see the introduction to TableGen.

The filename argument specifies the name of a Target Description (.td) file to read as input.

Options

-help

Print a summary of command line options.

-o filename

Specify the output file name.  If filename is -, then tblgen sends its output to standard output.

-I directory

Specify where to find other target description files for inclusion.  The directory value should be a full or partial path to a directory that contains target description files.

-asmparsernum N

Make -gen-asm-parser emit assembly writer number N.

-asmwriternum N

Make -gen-asm-writer emit assembly writer number N.

-class className

Print the enumeration list for this class.

-print-records

Print all records to standard output (default).

-print-enums

Print enumeration values for a class.

-print-sets

Print expanded sets for testing DAG exprs.

-gen-emitter
