Although compiler construction is a well-studied part of computer science, there are only few books that cover both theory and practical compiler crafting in-depth. This book is here to fill this niche. It explains compiler construction in simple terms and by means of practical examples, but without avoiding the fundamental theory. It does not stop where other books do, and takes you on a tour through the whole compilation process.

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.
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.

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.

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.
