Building from Source¶
Unless you really need to build Seq for whatever reason, we strongly recommend using pre-built binaries if possible.
Seq depends on LLVM 12, which can be installed via most package managers. To build LLVM 12 yourself, you can do the following:
git clone --depth 1 -b release/12.x https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project mkdir -p llvm-project/llvm/build cd llvm-project/llvm/build cmake .. \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -DLLVM_INCLUDE_TESTS=OFF \ -DLLVM_ENABLE_RTTI=ON \ -DLLVM_ENABLE_ZLIB=OFF \ -DLLVM_ENABLE_TERMINFO=OFF \ -DLLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD=host make make install
The following can generally be used to build Seq. The build process will automatically download and build several smaller dependencies.
mkdir build (cd build && cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -DLLVM_DIR=$(llvm-config --cmakedir) \ -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=clang \ -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=clang++) cmake --build build --config Release
This should produce the
seqc executable in the
build directory, as well as
seqtest which runs the test suite.
