Engineering a Compiler
Nick Black's review
Jan 10, 2009
GT Barnes & Noble 2009-01-0x. I've been reading too many books and papers about compilers the past few months to really enjoy this book very much, especially compared to Kennedy's and Muchinek's. This is kind of the "West End" or perhaps "Goals 2000" of the trio they form, with the least rigorous presentation and most minimal coverage. I think we're using this in CS6241 only because so many MS students are gormless waste-wits, admitted only to collect some tuition (I'm coming to loathe introducing myself as an MS student; until I start my PhD, I'm going to stick with "principal engineer, mcafee" and only admit I'm also a student when prodded). Sigh, such is life!
