Still I must give a warning that this subject is not for the faint of heart. Sana Omar rated it it was amazing Jan 01, Daniel Ogburn rated it it was amazing Feb 05, The problems with books like this is that they skim over topics not going deep into the subject ever.

Dmitry rated it it was amazing Oct 13, I cannot see anyone reading this book from cover enginrering cover. Today, code might be judged on how small it is, how much power it consumes, how well it compresses, or how many page faults it generates.

Erdembilegt Janchivdorj rated it it was amazing Oct 31, Mongo rated it it was amazing Aug 28, Engineering a Compiler explores this design space by presenting some of the ways these problems have been solved, and the constraints that made each of those solutions attractive.

Anakreontas Linsa rated it it was amazing Jun 28, Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Want to Read saving…. Focuses on the back end of the compiler–reflecting the focus of research and development over the last decade. Today’s compiler writer must choose a path through a design space that is filled with diverse alternatives, each with distinct costs, advantages, and complexities. I particularly enjoyed the textbook’s clean layout and design and cleanly written algorithms placed very close to the paragraphs where they are relevant.

Particularly after reading Muchnick, I found the amount of text explanation with a lack of concrete examples to be disturbing. Arul rated it did not like it Aug 19, No trivia or quizzes yet. This book has some good chapters.

Engineering a compiler / Keith D. Cooper and Linda Torczon – Details – Trove

All in all I suggest Engineering a Compiler as an excellent candidate for easy entry into a discussion on compilers, or an undergraduate text. Today, code might be judged on how small it is, how much power it consumes, how well it compresses, or how many p The proliferation of processors, environments, and constraints on systems has cast compiler technology into a wider variety of settings, changing the compiler and compiler londa role.

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.

Refresh and try again. Authors Keith Cooper and Linda Torczon convey both the art and the science of compiler construction and show best practice algorithms for the major passes of a compiler. By understanding the parameters of the problem and their impact on compiler design, the authors hope to convey both the depth of the problems and the breadth of possible solutions.


I do not recommend it.

Andrew rated it liked it Jun 24, Engineering a Compiler by Keith D. No longer is execution speed the sole criterion for judging compiled code. Sigh, such is life! And yet it is not a reference. Uses the well-developed theory from scanning and parsing to introduce concepts that play a critical role in optimization and code generation. Given that this can easily be made into a very confusing and convoluted subject, this book does a really good job of simplifying Compiler Engineering. J Nathan Kocurek rated it it was amazing Dec 12, Muhammad Shan rated it really liked it Jan 07, I think we’re using this in CS 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.

Presents examples in several different programming languages in order to best illustrate the concept. But after all this is just a intro to compiler. LadyFivestar rated it it was amazing Nov 29,
