Known Vulnerabilities


Ruby-LLVM is a Ruby language binding to the LLVM compiler infrastructure library. LLVM allows users to create just-in-time (JIT) compilers, ahead-of-time (AOT) compilers for multiple architectures, code analyzers and more. LLVM bindings can also be used to speed up Ruby code by compiling and loading computationally intensive algorithms on the fly.

Current version

This library currently binds to LLVM-11 (specifically llvm-c 11).

About version numbers

The first two digits of ruby-llvm's version number refer to the required major and minor version of LLVM. The third digit refers to the ruby-llvm release itself. Because LLVM's api changes often, this coupling between LLVM and ruby-llvm versions is useful.


LLVM Debian/Ubuntu Packages


LLVM can be installed with Homebrew by executing brew install llvm --shared
