Compiler Design: Theory, Tools and Examples

This book is a revision of an earlier edition that was written for a Pascal based curriculum. As many computer science departments have moved to C++ as the primary language in the undergraduate curriculum, I have produced this edition to accommodate those departments. This book is not intended to be strictly an object-oriented approach to compiler design.


Compiler design is a subject which many believe to be fundamental and vital to computer science. It is a subject which has been studied intensively since the early 1950’s and continues to be an important research field today. Compiler design is an important part of the undergraduate curriculum for many reasons: (1) It provides students with a better understanding of and appreciation for programming languages. (2) The techniques used in compilers can be used in other applications with command languages. (3) It provides motivation for the study of theoretic topics. (4) It is a good vehicle for an extended programming project.
