Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Clear description of algorithms and clean design of compiler components.Crafting a Compilerpresents a practical approach to compiler construction with thorough coverage of the material and examples that clearly illustrate the concepts in the book. Unlike other texts on the market, Fischer/Cytron/LeBlanc uses object-oriented design patterns and incorporates an algorithmic exposition with modern software practices. An ideal reference and tutorial.

Be careful about ordering the 3rd edition of this book. The book I received was from a printing where the text and figures were riddled with text rendering errors, resulting in large blank spaces where there should have been text. I didn't get far into the book because I needed it for school and I was forced to return it before my class got too far underway. Amazon accepted the return but I have no idea what the publisher is doing about this problem. My instructor is one of the authors and even he had not heard back from them two weeks after reporting the problem.

I am 22. I found this rare book at a library sells, they were having a sell and sold this vbook for [money]. My interest at that time was compiler design. It was more out of curiosity, than for any real project. So, maybe this review is not from the perpsective of a professional, but a curious student 3 years ago. I did find this book to be rather incitive. This book is also heavy on terminology. As in the first chapter they give a detailed desciption of different classes of compilers. The second chapter goes into lexical analysis. And the next few chapters they give the student an excercise to write a small compiler, that is rather trivial. That is the plus of this book, they give excercises for the student.
This book also has a chapter on scanning, which is the best I ever seen in any compiler design book I have ever read. They talk about concepts of set theory as it relates to lexical analysis. Then they talk about regular expression and Fintie automata. This book is a great read indeed, and very easy to read.
There are quite of few chapters dedicated to parsing. In the chapters related to parsing they give a comparisons to Top Down and Bottom up parsing. They even go well known utilities like Yacc. The last few chapters go into depth chapter by chapter on implementing control structures:conditional, itereative, recursive. Even the appropiate runtimes, like code generation. There is even one chapter that goes into the fundemental Data Structures for a compiler. The last chapters is called "Parsing In The Real World".
The code example in this book are based off of a language the ADA-CS langauge. There is a brief tutorial of this language. But the code is just illustration, as they do not use a full langauge for the illustration.
