Basics of Compiler Design
by Torben Mogensen
Publisher: Lulu.com 2007
Number of pages: 277
This book was written for use in the introductory compiler course at DIKU, the department of computer science at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is intended to convey the general picture without going into extreme detail about such things as efficient implementation or the newest techniques. It should give the students an understanding of how compilers work and the ability to make simple (but not simplistic) compilers for simple languages. It will also lay a foundation that can be used for studying more advanced compilation techniques, as found e.g. in Advanced Compiler Design and Implementation.

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.

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.

This book treats parsing in great depth. It offers a clear and thorough discussion of different parsing techniques with their applications, including error recovery techniques. The text covers almost all parsing methods, not just the popular ones.

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.
