LLVM's Clang Now Can Build Itself
Written by Michael Larabel in Compiler on 6 February 2010 at 10:38 AM EST. 10 Comments
The Clang compiler that provides a C/Object-C/C++ compiler atop the Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) is now self-hosting, which means Clang can now be used to compile itself. The LLVM developers reached this important milestone where LLVM/Clang can now be used to build Clang with working resulting binaries that can even go on to build another copy of Clang as well.

The short announcement of this compiler achievement for LLVM/Clang can be read on the LLVM blog.
