Understanding and Writing Compilers
by Richard Bornat
Publisher: Middlesex University 2008
Number of pages: 435
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, but it doesn't attempt an encyclopaedic coverage of the field.

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.

The book written for use in an introductory compiler course. It is intended to convey the general picture without going into extreme detail. It should give the students an understanding of how compilers work and the ability to make simple compilers.
The purpose of this book is to provide practical advice on writing a compiler, together with some examples of both compilers and interpreters, in order to break away from the concept that building compilers and interpreters are impossible tasks.
