This book has emerged from the author's lecture notes for an introductory course in compiler design at ETH Zürich. 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.

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.

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.

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.
