LLVM binutils

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

LLVM has a suite of binary utilities that broadly mirror the GNU binutils
suite, with tools such as llvm-readelf, llvm-nm, and llvm-objcopy. These tools
are already widely used in testing the rest of LLVM, and are now starting to be
adopted as full replacements for the GNU tools in production environments.

This discussion will focus on what more needs to be done to make this migration
process easier, how far we need to go to make drop-in replacements for the GNU
tools, and what features people want to prioritize. Finally, we will look at
the broader future goals of these tools.
