Description:
This book has emerged from the author's lecture notes for an introductory course in compiler design at ETH Z├╝rich. The author has been asked to justify this course for several times, since compiler design is considered a somewhat esoteric subject, practised only in a few highly specialized software houses. 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. This book is an introduction, and not a reference book for experts.
