Do I need to compile from source just Clang or both?
Usually Clang is built with LLVM, i.e running make inside the
LLVM build directory will build both LLVM and Clang.

If it's correct - could you provide any example of calling C++
function from dll?
On Windows the Clang executable has to be in one of the %PATH%
folders and then in your D code:
modmap (C++) "headerofyourdll.h"; // will make Clang generate a
import (C++) Namespace1.Namespace2._; // If your functions are
global functions inside Namespace1.Namespace2, _ is a special
module (for now) that contains all the global funcs, vars and
import (C++) Namespace1.Struct1; // If they are inside a struct
The imports expose symbols that you can use like you'd use D
structs and functions.
Finally you need to tell LDC to link to your library:
ldc -L="yourDLL.lib" (...)
