llvmlite provides a Python binding to LLVM for use in Numba. The old llvmpy binding exposes a lot of LLVM APIs but the mapping of C++-style memory management to Python is error prone. Numba and many JIT compilers do not need a full LLVM API. Only the IR builder, optimizer, and JIT compiler APIs are necessary. llvmlite is a project originally tailored for Numba's needs, using the following approach: * A small C wrapper around the parts of the LLVM C++ API we need that are not already exposed by the LLVM C API. * A ctypes Python wrapper around the C API. * A pure Python implementation of the subset of the LLVM IR builder that we need for Numba.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
