Monami:
CLANG/LLVM tool chain has been enabled in Edk2 project for Windows/Linux/Mac OS.
You can see more detail from https://github.com/tianocore/tianocore.github.io/wiki/CLANG9-Tools-Chain

But on Windows, CLANG tool chain still depends on Visual Studio (VS) tool. There are two dependency here.
One is that BaseTools C tools requires to be compiled by VS tool to windows exe, another VS nmake is required to build source file.

Can you evaluate whether CLANG/LLVM compiler generates Windows EXE without VS tool?

Thanks
Liming

Hi there,

I'm Monami - a Master's in Computer Engineering student at Virginia Tech, US.
This is my first semester here as an international student, so I don't have CPT
authorization to get paid for working this summer.
But I'm really interested in contributing here - especially the project "Enable
Clang/LLVM Build for Microsoft Windows", or some other similar project.

This semester I've taken the courses Compiler Optimizations and OS &
Virtualization where I've implemented an iterative dataflow framework to
analyze passes. I've also worked on UEFI by building a bootloader and setting
up virtual address spaces for user applications amongst other things. I am not
able to share those projects yet as public on my GitHub page because I'm still
only halfway through the semester and not done with the courses, but I can
share it separately to an email-id if required as proof of work. By the end of
the semester, I'll have implemented my course projects as well, and I feel the
project listed here is the perfect fit for me to expand on my skills and help the
community at the same time. I have experience with C as well as Python and
I'm a quick study and work well under minimal supervision.

I was wondering if I could still contribute here, even if I am not potentially
eligible yet to enroll as a Google Summer of Code student because of CPT
authorization issues.
Please let me know how I can help!

Regards,
Monami Dutta Gupta
