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.
