  • How the Flang Frontend Works

    The open-source Fortran frontend for LLVM known as Flang is discussed. The ultimate goal for Flang is to become part of the LLVM ecosystem, receiving the same level of support as the Clang frontend. To support this goal, this paper explains the Flang frontend interior, alongside giving a description of how the source code is structured.
