xDSL package

Project description



To install all required dependencies, execute the following command:

pip install -r requirements.txt

TODO: check if PYTHONPATH is required or if there exists an easy fix for it.


This project includes pytest unit test and llvm-style filecheck tests. They can be executed using to following commands from within the root directory of the project:

# Executes pytests which are located in tests/

# Executes filecheck tests
lit tests/filecheck

Generating executables through MLIR

xDSL can generate executables using MLIR as the backend. To use this functionality, make sure to install the MLIR Python Bindings. Given an input file input.xdsl, that contains IR with only the mirrored dialects found in src/xdsl/dialects (arith, memref, func, cf, scf, and builtin), run:

### Prints MLIR generic from to tmp.mlir
./src/xdsl/ -t mlir  -o tmp.mlir `input.xdsl`

mlir-opt --convert-scf-to-cf --convert-cf-to-llvm --convert-func-to-llvm --convert-arith-to-llvm --convert-memref-to-llvm --reconcile-unrealized-casts tmp.mlir | mlir-translate --mlir-to-llvmir > tmp.ll

The generated tmp.ll file contains LLVMIR, so it can be directly passed to a compiler like clang. Notice that a main function is required for clang to build. Refer to tests/filecheck/arith_ops.test for an example. The functionality is tested with MLIR git commit hash: 74992f4a5bb79e2084abdef406ef2e5aa2024368


All python code used in xDSL use yapf to format the code in a uniform manner.

To automate the formatting within vim, one can use and trigger a :Autoformat on save.
