LLVM Advances Tool To Auto-Convert Code To C++11
Written by Michael Larabel in Intel on 15 April 2013 at 09:47 AM EDT. 1 Comment
For several months Intel developers have been working on a tool that allows for source-to-source automated conversions of C++ code into C++11 compliant code.

In early December was when Intel proposed this auto-convert C++11 tool so that existing C++ code can more easily take advantage of C++11 functionality.

The C++11 Migrator tool seeks to take advantage of the new language features that enhance maintainability, readability, run-time performance, and compile-time performance of the converted code. The migrator leverages LLVM in the form of using the C++ Clang compiler's LibTooling and AST Matching Library.
