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 treats parsing in great depth. It offers a clear and thorough discussion of different parsing techniques with their applications, including error recovery techniques. The text covers almost all parsing methods, not just the popular ones.
The goal of this book is to have a community documentation providing extensive and up-to-date instructional information about how to use the open-source ROSE compiler framework, developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

This book attempts to explain and demystify the principles of compiler writing so that you can go out and build a working compiler of your own. There is enough detail in this book for you to build a compiler for quite a complicated language.

This book has emerged from the author's lecture notes for an introductory course in compiler design at ETH Zürich. This book will try to explain why this subject is considered as important and relevant to computer science students in general.
