Hi everyone!

We've scheduled two one-hour interactive webinars where NVIDIA will present our current progress re-writing the Flang frontend.

This is a calendar invitation for the presentation scheduled for July 11.  The first presentation is scheduled for July 2; there’s a similar email with a calendar invitation for that meeting. The information presented in each webinar will be very similar.

To those of you who are contributors to any part of Clang or Flang, your participation is specifically requested so we can get feedback from the community.

There’s more information about the github repo and what we’re doing at the end of this message.

The team developing Flang
(https://github.com/flang-compiler/flang), an LLVM frontend
for Fortran, has been working diligently at improving the
existing code base, adding new features, etc. However, while
this is delivering a production-quality frontend, it is
clear that the incremental evolution of the existing C code
base likely won't get us to a "Clang for Fortran" for
several reasons. What we want is a frontend for Fortran
that, like Clang, is suitable for both tooling and
traditional compilation, written in modern C++ making use of
LLVM support classes as appropriate, and otherwise takes
advantage of the collective frontend-development experience
of the LLVM community.

To address this desire, as announced briefly at EuroLLVM,
the NVIDIA team has started working on a ground-up rewrite
of Flang.  We will explain how peculiarities of Fortran have
influenced the current design, and we would like to get
feedback from the community early in the development

You can find the work-in-progress frontend here:

Thank you to Hal Finkel for moderating the doodle poll and
writing most of these words (from in his original messages).


P.S. If you want to have a technical discussion about Flang
itself, please use the flang-dev mailing list
(http://lists.flang-compiler.org/mailman/listinfo), not this
one. I'm posting here only to reach Clang and Flang contributors.
The goal is to create a Fortran frontend that might eventually
be accepted as a formal part of the LLVM project.
