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.

This book describes the code patterns that perform well on PowerPC processors. The book will be particularly helpful to compiler developers and application-code specialists who are already familiar with optimizing compiler technology.

Here are the results of Project Oberon, which goal was to design an entire system from scratch. It gives advice on how a system might be built, and demonstrates how one was built. Program listings alone contain the ultimate explanations.

This book is a reference guide for the parser generator ANTLR, ANother Tool for Language Recognition, and the tree-parser generator SORCERER, which is suited to source-to-source translation. It is valuable to scientists, engineers, or programmers.
