    Rust needs llvm backend which is not yet available on AIX.
    So this will require some good amount of work to port Rust on AIX. 
    May I ask what is your use case ?

    Hi Sanket, as far as I know, the new XL C/C++ compiler is built using LLVM. That's why I suppose, that LLVM is already ported to AIX. My use case is very simple - the new InfluxDB 2.0 uses both Golang and Rust. Without Rust I will not be able to compile it on AIX.

    XL C/C++ are not based on LLVM. But there is work going on for porting llvm for AIX
    https://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2019-February/130175.html

    This will take some time until we do not have llvm backend rust will not be possible on AIX.

    Hi,

    There is any news on porting rust to AIX?
    As far as I could understand, llvm is already available.

    TIA,
    Daniel
