The GENTLE Compiler Construction System, originally designed in 1989 at the German National Research Center for Information Technolgy, is now in industrial use for fifteen years: The very first system was sold to Nixdorf Computers, who used it to implement their Combined Object-Oriented Language, a C++ alternative for large mission-critical projects, e.g. in the chemical industry. The first Gentle system in 2005 was sold to Ritlabs, creators of The Bat, a leading email client.

This is a very hands-on approach to crafting a compiler and it does not follow any pre-defined set of rules. It is the author's intent to take some of the mystery out of what goes into making a working scripting engine - compiler.

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.

Guide to compiler construction using tools like Flex and Bison. Using these tools, you can focus on the concept of compiler without the hassle of building a compiler from scratch. You are required to be fluent in C programming.

The approach is similar to that taken by Tanenbaum for operating systems in the C-language that implements all algorithms. The book presents the subject of Compiler Design in a way that's understandable to a programmer, rather than a mathematician.
