Let's Build a Compiler
by Jack Crenshaw
Number of pages: 277
This fifteen-part series, written from 1988 to 1995, is a tutorial on the theory and practice of developing language parsers and compilers from scratch. Before you are finished, you will have covered every aspect of compiler construction, designed a new programming language, and built a working compiler. At the end of this series you will by no means be a computer scientist, nor will you know all the esoterics of compiler theory. The author intended to completely ignore the more theoretical aspects of the subject. What you will know is all the practical aspects that one needs to know to build a working system.

This book follows a theory-based practical approach, where theoretical models serve as blueprint for actual coding. The reader is guided to build compilers and interpreters. The solutions are moreover portable to different implementation languages.

Designed for computer science students studying for a second year course in compilers/programming language translation, this text manages to combine theory, applications and use of compiler writing tools to give a solid introduction to the subject.

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.

This is a very hands-on approach to crafting a compiler and it does not follow any pre-defined set of rules. It is the author's intent to take some of the mystery out of what goes into making a working scripting engine - compiler.
