lli - directly execute programs from LLVM bitcode

SYNOPSIS

:program:`lli` [options] [filename] [program args]

DESCRIPTION

:program:`lli` directly executes programs in LLVM bitcode format. It takes a program in LLVM bitcode format and executes it using a just-in-time compiler or an interpreter.

:program:`lli` is not an emulator. It will not execute IR of different architectures and it can only interpret (or JIT-compile) for the host architecture.

The JIT compiler takes the same arguments as other tools, like :program:`llc`, but they don't necessarily work for the interpreter.

If filename is not specified, then :program:`lli` reads the LLVM bitcode for the program from standard input.

The optional args specified on the command line are passed to the program as arguments.

If :program:`lli` fails to load the program, it will exit with an exit code of 1. Otherwise, it will return the exit code of the program it executes.
