Reviews, Ratings, and Recommendations: Several times I have been asked to justify this course, since compiler design is considered a somewhat esoteric subject, practised only in a few highly specialized software houses. For more information about the cookies policy and uses click here.

My university was really into Pascal and Modula-2 and had a consrtuction or third year course called Compiler Construction. Readers are taken step-by-step through each stage of compiler design, using the simple yet powerful method of recursive descent to create a compiler for Oberon-0, a subset of the author’s Oberon language.

It’s great to see this available and updated. Compilers and Compiler Generators by P. This book construcction an introduction, niklauw not a reference book for experts. Because nowadays everything which does not yield immediate profits has to be justified, this book will try to explain why this subject is considered as important and relevant to computer science students in general.

WalterBright on Dec 20, The hands-on, pragmatic approach makes the book equally attractive for project-oriented courses in compiler design and for software engineers wishing to develop their skills in system software About the Authors Niklaus Wirth is a Swiss computer scientist, best known for designing several programming languages, including Pascal, nikklaus for pioneering several classic topics in software engineering.

The book will be particularly helpful to compiler developers and application-code specialists who are already familiar with optimizing compiler technology. I feel it’s a much better starting point for someone actually interested in building a compiler than say, the Dragon book. A disk provided with the book gives full listings of the Oberon-0 compiler and associated tools. Hacker News new comments show ask jobs submit. Compiler Construction Niklaus Wirth.


In particular, knowledge about system surfaces alone is insufficient in computer science; what is needed is an understanding of contents. He achieved that by focusing on generating good code to begin with rather than generating bad code and letting the optimizer fix things up. I didn’t realise this book existed. WalterBright on Dec 21, Compilers convert program texts into internal code.

Thanks for linking that out, a classic read along with Crenshaw. I’m not sure if we actually used lex or yacc.

Now, one may interject that knowledge about the method of translation is unnecessary for an understanding of the relationship between source program and object code, and even much less relevant is knowing how to actually construct a compiler.

In he won the Turing Award, generally recognized as the highest distinction in computer science,[2][3] for developing a sequence of innovative computer languages.

He also preferred parsing with recursive descent because he felt it forced the language designer to keep the language approachable and simple.

Yacc is more powerful in the sense that it can parse LR 1 languages in addition to the more restrictive LL 1 languages but many or even most languages are LL 1 and certainly any reasonable little language will be.
