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 presents Gentle, an integrated system for compiler writers. Gentle supports the description of compilers at a very high level and relieves users from the need to deal with implementation details, significantly increasing productivity.

The approach is similar to that taken by Tanenbaum for operating systems in the C-language that implements all algorithms. The book presents the subject of Compiler Design in a way that's understandable to a programmer, rather than a mathematician.

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.
