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.

This manual documents the internals of the GNU compilers, including how to port them to new targets and some information about how to write front ends for new languages. It corresponds to the compilers (GCC) version 4.4.0.

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.
