I think it is a tribute to this book that I have owned a copy of it twice.
I my early days of computer work I used to write interpreters and scripting engines and I found this book invaluable.

At some point I lost it, and subsequently missed it so much that I was driven to buy another.

Although some of the mechanisms described are now quite old, the basic principles remain good and the advice is still pertinent, even in the slick, fast world of today's computer systems.
