Fix hardcoded path seperator in two code locations

Authored by yaron.keren on May 9 2014, 2:32 AM.



Earlier duscussion:

Most of LLVM code uses the llvm::sys::path::append function to concatenate paths and will get the correct native slash. In some code locations it seems that direct string concatenation was used, possibly because the code writer knows there are no extra path sepeartors to deal with, so string concat was more efficient than append.

In the locations below, the path seperator is hardcoded as '/'. Fixed by exposing the native seperator from llvm::sys:;path and using it.

As an alternative, the append function could be used but it's more code and less efficient.

Let's be consistent with what append does. If users want to do cross-compiling, we'll need to thread a flag down to fs::append() so it also does the right thing.


This should return a StringRef.

With StringRef.

We don't need this global data. It will probably require a dynamic initializer, which is lame. Clang is smart enough to optimize out strlen if you just return preferred_separator directly:

$ cat t.cpp
extern "C" int strlen(const char *s);
struct StringRef {
  const char *p;
  size_t len;
  StringRef(const char *s) : p(s), len(strlen(s)) {}
static const char preferred_sep[] = { '/', '\0' };
StringRef getPrefSep() {
  return StringRef(preferred_sep);

$ clang -c t.cpp -O2 -S -o - --target=x86_64-linux -fPIC | grep '^\s[^\.]'
        leaq    _ZL13preferred_sep(%rip), %rax
        movl    $1, %edx
