The book written for use in an introductory compiler course. It is intended to convey the general picture without going into extreme detail. It should give the students an understanding of how compilers work and the ability to make simple compilers.
by Jack Crenshaw
A tutorial on the theory and practice of developing language parsers and compilers. It covers every aspect of compiler construction, programming language design, and building a working compiler. More theoretical aspects of the subject are ignored.

This book 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 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.
