Building a JIT: Extreme Laziness - Using Compile Callbacks to JIT from ASTs

.. contents::

**This tutorial is under active development. It is incomplete and details may
change frequently.** Nonetheless we invite you to try it out as it stands, and
we welcome any feedback.

Chapter 4 Introduction

Welcome to Chapter 4 of the "Building an ORC-based JIT in LLVM" tutorial. This
chapter introduces the Compile Callbacks and Indirect Stubs APIs and shows how
they can be used to replace the CompileOnDemand layer from
`Chapter 3 <BuildingAJIT3.html>`_ with a custom lazy-JITing scheme that JITs
directly from Kaleidoscope ASTs.

**To be done:**

**(1) Describe the drawbacks of JITing from IR (have to compile to IR first,
which reduces the benefits of laziness).**

**(2) Describe CompileCallbackManagers and IndirectStubManagers in detail.**

**(3) Run through the implementation of addFunctionAST.**

Full Code Listing

Here is the complete code listing for our running example that JITs lazily from
Kaleidoscope ASTS. To build this example, use:

.. code-block:: bash

    # Compile
    clang++ -g toy.cpp `llvm-config --cxxflags --ldflags --system-libs --libs core orc native` -O3 -o toy
    # Run

Here is the code:

.. literalinclude:: ../../examples/Kaleidoscope/BuildingAJIT/Chapter4/KaleidoscopeJIT.h
   :language: c++
