Practical Compiler Construction
Study the heavily annotated source code of a full compiler for a
subset of the C programming language generating code for the popular
386 processor. Learn about the practice of lexical analysis,
syntax analysis, semantic analysis, code generation, etc.
Extend your theoretical background by learning about the foundations
and applications of scan trees, formal grammars, abstract programs,
code generation models, and program transformation.
Finally, have a look at more advanced compilation techniques such
as code synthesis, abstract program optimization, peephole optimization,
common subexpression elimination.
This is an advanced programming textbook and a compiler-writing
primer. Some programming skills are required, but no prior knowledge
in the field of compiler construction is necessary.
