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 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.

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.

We will build a small functional language called Fun, complete with a parser, type inference, datatypes, pattern matching, desugaring, typeclasses, higher-kinded types, monadic IO, arbitrary-rank polymorphism, records, Core language, etc.

Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that converts an annotated context-free grammar into an LALR(1) or GLR parser for that grammar. You need to be fluent in C or C++ programming in order to use Bison or to understand this manual.
