Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Clang'


Clang (pronounced /ˈklæŋ/ like the English word clang) is a compiler front end for the C, C++, Objective-C and Objective-C++ programming languages. It uses the Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) as its back end. Its goal is to offer a replacement to the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC). Development is sponsored by Apple. Clang is available under a free software licence.

The Clang project includes the Clang front end and the Clang Static Analyzer among others.

Starting in 2005, Apple has made extensive use of LLVM in a number of commercial systems, including the iPhone development kit and Xcode 3.1.

One of the first uses of LLVM was an OpenGL code compiler for Mac OS X that converts OpenGL calls into more fundamental calls for graphics processing units that do not support certain features. This allowed Apple to support the entire OpenGL application programming interface (API) on computers using Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) chipsets, increasing performance on those machines. For sufficiently capable GPUs, the code is compiled to take full advantage of the underlying hardware, but on GMA machines, LLVM compiles the same OpenGL code into subroutines to ensure it continues to work properly.
