Let's Build a Compiler
by Jack Crenshaw
Number of pages: 277
This fifteen-part series, written from 1988 to 1995, is a tutorial on the theory and practice of developing language parsers and compilers from scratch. Before you are finished, you will have covered every aspect of compiler construction, designed a new programming language, and built a working compiler. At the end of this series you will by no means be a computer scientist, nor will you know all the esoterics of compiler theory. The author intended to completely ignore the more theoretical aspects of the subject. What you will know is all the practical aspects that one needs to know to build a working system.

The purpose of this book is to provide practical advice on writing a compiler, together with some examples of both compilers and interpreters, in order to break away from the concept that building compilers and interpreters are impossible tasks.

Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that converts an annotated context-free grammar into an LALR(1) or GLR parser for that grammar. You need to be fluent in C or C++ programming in order to use Bison or to understand this manual.

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.

This book contains everything you need to implement a full-featured, efficient scripting language. You'll learn both high-level concepts around parsing and semantics and gritty details like bytecode representation and garbage collection.
