LLVM generates code that's quicker via a long way than that generated through the conventional GCC. as well as growing quicker code, LLVM additionally is familiar with extra approximately your code, so it might generate smarter, extra distinctive mistakes messages and warnings. Xcode can be tightly built-in with LLVM, which supplies it a few new superpowers. Xcode can provide extra exact code of completion, and it will probably make informed guesses as to the particular motive of a section of code while it produces a caution, providing a pop-up menu of most likely fixes.
