Hi, I'm looking into making an IR compiler plugin with 1.4.0, but I seem to be having an issue with my Transformer. For reference, my code is here: https://gist.github.com/FalseHonesty/c76cef82585b0f5f0052a01e54d520b3. The
lower
function in my Transformer class seems to be called correctly, but my two visitors never seem to be called. I attempted to debug what happens in the
lower
function, but execution gets passed to a class called
IRDeclarationBase
when visiting the
main
function, which is a class I can't find the source for. Nothing seems to be called after that. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

Hey, did you try to dump IR (you can use
ir2stringWhole
) that this function gets converted into? Does it have
SetVariable
expression? You can also try to visit more generic call, I assume IR could have a bit different representation than you'd expect.

Ahh, I didn't know about the
ir2stringWhole
function, that's very handy. It turns out, it looks like this https://gist.github.com/FalseHonesty/cdb670fe4c640a5bfe8fd899de2b9a02, which now makes sense. Thank you so much! Also, do you happen to know if/how I could check if the class being instantiated by a
IrConstructorCall
extends a different class?
Nevermind, I found out how I believe ­čÖé
