//===- DCE.cpp - Code to perform dead code elimination --------------------===//
// The LLVM Compiler Infrastructure
// This file is distributed under the University of Illinois Open Source
// License. See LICENSE.TXT for details.
// This file implements the Aggressive Dead Code Elimination pass. This pass
// optimistically assumes that all instructions are dead until proven otherwise,
// allowing it to eliminate dead computations that other DCE passes do not
// catch, particularly involving loop computations.
