This classic book, known to professors, students, and developers world-wide as “the Dragon Book” is the bible of compiler design. It provides a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of compilers. The text begins with an introduction to the principal ideas behind compilation, and then illustrates these ideas by constructing a simple one-pass compiler. The remainder of the book amplifies the ideas presented in the first two chapters and discusses more advanced topics such as syntax analysis, type checking, code generation, and code optimization.
This new edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the current state of the art of compilation. New information has been introduced throughout the text, including topics such as; syntax-directed translation, data-flow analysis, code optimization, just-in-time compiling, and garbage collection. All the new material is brought together and applied through new case studies.
