LLVM 2.0 and Beyond!A Google Techtalk by Chris Lattner
In this video, Chris Lattner talks about some of the features of Clang, especially in regards to performance.
Details: The LLVM 2.0 release brings a number of new features and capabilities to the LLVM toolset. This talk briefly describes those features, then moves on to talk about what is next: llvm 2.1, llvm-gcc 4.2, and puts a special emphasis on the 'clang' C front-end. This describes how the 'clang' preprocessor can be used to improve the scalability of distcc by up to 4.4x.
