  LLVM Command Guide

<div>

<p>These documents are HTML versions of the <a href="man/man1/">man pages</a>
for all of the LLVM tools.  These pages describe how to use the LLVM commands
and what their options are.  Note that these pages do not describe all of the
options available for all tools.  To get a complete listing, pass the
<tt>-help</tt> (general options) or <tt>-help-hidden</tt> (general+debugging
options) arguments to the tool you are interested in.</p>
