Re-packaged Cling, as backend for cppyy


A repackaging of Cling, the interactive C++ interpreter, including a version
of LLVM that is patched for interactive use.

Compilation of LLVM may take a long time, so when building from source, it is
recommended to set MAKE_NPROCS to the number of cores on your machine and to
use the verbose flag to see progress:

$ MAKE_NPROCS=32 pip install --verbose cppyy-cling

Alternatively, there are binary wheels (Mac 10.12, Linux/Gentoo)
available here:

Use '--extra-index' as an argument to pip to
pick them up.

Cling documentation is here:
