Project Oberon - The Design of an Operating System and Compiler
by Niklaus Wirth, Jürg Gutknecht
Number of pages: 441
This book presents the results of Project Oberon, namely an entire software environment for a modern workstation. The project was undertaken by the authors in the years 1986-89, and its primary goal was to design and implement an entire system from scratch, and to structure it in such a way that it can be described, explained, and understood as a whole. In order to become confronted with all aspects, problems, design decisions and details, the authors not only conceived but also programmed the entire system described in this book, and more. Although there exist numerous books explaining principles and structures of operating systems, there is a lack of descriptions of systems actually implemented and used. The book gives advice on how a system might be built, and demonstrates how one was built. Program listings therefore play a key role in this text, because they alone contain the ultimate explanations.

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.

Our intent is to provide the reader with a firm theoretical basis for compiler construction and sound engineering principles for selecting alternate methods, implementing them, and integrating them into a reliable, economically viable product.

Designed for computer science students studying for a second year course in compilers/programming language translation, this text manages to combine theory, applications and use of compiler writing tools to give a solid introduction to the subject.

This manual documents the internals of the GNU compilers, including how to port them to new targets and some information about how to write front ends for new languages. It corresponds to the compilers (GCC) version 4.4.0.
