Basics of Compiler Design
by Torben Mogensen
Publisher: Lulu.com 2007
Number of pages: 277
This book was written for use in the introductory compiler course at DIKU, the department of computer science at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is intended to convey the general picture without going into extreme detail about such things as efficient implementation or the newest techniques. It should give the students an understanding of how compilers work and the ability to make simple (but not simplistic) compilers for simple languages. It will also lay a foundation that can be used for studying more advanced compilation techniques, as found e.g. in Advanced Compiler Design and Implementation.

This book explains compiler construction in simple terms and by means of practical examples, but without avoiding the fundamental theory. It does not stop where other books do, and takes you on a tour through the whole compilation process.
The purpose of this book is to provide practical advice on writing a compiler, together with some examples of both compilers and interpreters, in order to break away from the concept that building compilers and interpreters are impossible tasks.

This manual documents how to run, install and port the GNU compiler, as well as its new features. It corresponds to GCC version 3.0. Only the options for the C, Objective-C, and C++ compilers and those of the GCC core are discussed.

This is an introductory level text for compiler design courses, that emphasizes problem solving skills. The concepts are clearly presented with sampler problems and diagrams to illustrate the concepts. The text also covers lex and yacc.
