Parsing Techniques: A Practical Guide
by Dick Grune, Ceriel J. H. Jacobs
Publisher: Ellis Horwood Ltd 1998
Number of pages: 318
This 320-page book treats parsing in its own right, in greater depth than is found in most computer science and linguistics books. It offers a clear, accessible, and thorough discussion of many different parsing techniques with their interrelations and applicabilities, including error recovery techniques. Unlike most books, it treats (almost) all parsing methods, not just the popular ones.

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.

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.

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.
