Building cling standalone with libc++abi and libc++ on Linux

Since 2013 I have been able to create a “pure” LLVM/clang/libc++/libc++abi 3.3 environment for our Linux distros (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit, RHEL 6.x, Fedora 17 and later), where “pure” means the environment is free from GNU libstdc++.

This approach is very liberating as it enables us to use C++1y fully even on old Linux (e.g. RHEL 6.x) and is orthogonal to the GNU based build environment. Furthermore, using a distro’s native package management system to handle install/uninstall packages, all hosts are kept clean, not messed up with the typical ./configure && make install.

Last year for 3.3, I used an autotools + native packaging utility based approach. This year, for 3.4 I am again successful in creating a “pure” environment but with cmake, with my own patches to all relevant CMakeLists.txt files and modules. So, today, I wanted to take a stab to build cling as a standalone package (both deb and rpm) free from libstdc++ as well.

Upon reviewing cling’s CMakeLists.txt, first I was encouraged. It seemed that it enables standalone build, despite the build instruction http://root.cern.ch/drupal/content/cling-build-instructions doesn’t say so :frowning: But, upon reviewing for example the following, I knew to get everything going in a “pure” environment would take a lot more work than I have time to:

from src/cmake/modules/HandleLLVMOptions.cmake

20 # Also test that we aren't using too old of a version of libstdc++ with the 21 # Clang compiler. This is tricky as there is no real way to check the 22 # version of libstdc++ directly. Instead we test for a known bug in 23 # libstdc++4.6 that is fixed in libstdc++4.7. 24 if(NOT LLVM_ENABLE_LIBCXX) 25 set(OLD_CMAKE_REQUIRED_FLAGS ${CMAKE_REQUIRED_FLAGS}) 26 set(OLD_CMAKE_REQUIRED_LIBRARIES ${CMAKE_REQUIRED_LIBRARIES}) 27 set(CMAKE_REQUIRED_FLAGS "-std=c++0x") 28 if (ANDROID) 29 set(CMAKE_REQUIRED_LIBRARIES "atomic") 30 endif() 31 check_cxx_source_compiles(" 32 #include <atomic> 33 std::atomic<float> x(0.0f); 34 int main() { return (float)x; }" 35 LLVM_NO_OLD_LIBSTDCXX) 36 #if(NOT LLVM_NO_OLD_LIBSTDCXX) 37 # message(FATAL_ERROR "Host Clang must be able to find libstdc++4.7 or newer!") 38 #endif() 39 set(CMAKE_REQUIRED_FLAGS ${OLD_CMAKE_REQUIRED_FLAGS}) 40 set(CMAKE_REQUIRED_LIBRARIES ${OLD_CMAKE_REQUIRED_LIBRARIES}) 41 endif() 42 elseif(CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER_ID MATCHES "MSVC") 43 if(CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER_VERSION VERSION_LESS 17.0) 44 message(FATAL_ERROR "Host Visual Studio must be at least 2012 (MSVC 17.0)") 45 endif() 46 endif() 47 endif()

The above obviously hard-coded in the assumption that cling is to be built with GCC. No, I haven’t need to use GCC or libstdc++ for more than a year already. clang has been able to self-host since 2010 http://blog.llvm.org/2010/02/clang-successfully-self-hosts.html so using GCC is not mandatory.

Does the cling team have a plan to enable cling to build in a “pure” environment?

Hi,

Sorry - I don’t understand your question. I can build cling with clang. We build cling on MacOS using clang and libc++. I can build cling on Ubuntu with gcc 4.8 and its libstdc++. Can you show me what configure you want to run and what fails?

Cheers, Axel.

Hi Axel,

You said:

The bold-faced part is exactly what I prefer to avoid :slight_smile:. Please see below.

/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007fedfc568000)
[/code]

Note that in our environment, clang is independent of GNU libstdc++. The Q is actually very simple: how can we build cling with such an environment that’s independent of libstdc++?

So far, with the LLVM 3.4 release, all I need to do is the following:

export CC=/usr/bin/clang export CXX=/usr/bin/clang++ export CXXFLAGS="-stdlib=libc++" export LDFLAGS=-lc++abi cmake -DLLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD="X86" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Release" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .. make -j 4 make package

and I have a

zperry@nb1:~/work/llvm/clang3.4/_tars/llvm-3.4/build$ ls -l *.deb -rw-rw-r-- 1 zperry zperry 50823776 Mar 20 11:00 llvm-dev_3.4-1_amd64.deb

But with your patched LLVM, the above would error out due to these GCC specific checks.

Cheers,

– Zack

Hi,

The part of HandleLLVMOptions.cmake exists in both cling’s patched llvm and vanilla llvm. Could you state the exact steps you do and the error message you get?

Cheers, Axel.

Hi Alex,

– Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
zperry@nb1:~/work/llvm/cling/src/build$
[/code]

cmake couldn’t even complete the configuration steps :frowning:

I hope these were sufficient? I like cling very much (it reminds me the pleasure of using Saber C/C++ interpreter in the early 90s :smiley: and would like to see it in wider use. But the above has been a hindrance so far.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks! Lets start from the basic things:

HandleLLVMOptions.cmake is a verbatim copy of what’s in llvm rev 202469 - we have applied no changes to this file.

Cheers, Axel.

Hi Alex,

Thanks! So, I will try to resolve that first.
