Target Description to C++ Code

Synopsis

xxx-tblgen [options] [filename]

Description

xxx-tblgen is a family of programs that translates target description (.td) files into C++ code and other output formats. Most users of LLVM will not need to use this program. It is used only for writing parts of the compiler or LLVM target backends.

The details of the input and output of xxx-tblgen is beyond the scope of this short introduction; please see the TableGen Overview for an introduction and for references to additional TableGen documents.

The filename argument specifies the name of the Target Description (.td) file that TableGen processes.

Options

General Options

-help

Print a description of the command line options.

-help-list

Print a description of the command line options in a simple list format.

-D=macroname

Specify the name of a macro to be defined. The name is defined, but it has no particular value.

-d=filename

Specify the name of the dependency filename.

-debug

Enable debug output.

-dump-json

Print a JSON representation of all records, suitable for further automated processing.

-I directory

-o filename

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