Engineering a Compiler by Keith D. Cooper

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. No trivia or quizzes yet. Books by Keith D. Muhammad Shan rated it really liked it Jan 07, Brian rated it really liked it Jan 09, Uses the well-developed theory from scanning and parsing to introduce concepts that play a critical role in optimization and code generation.

Jan 10, Nick Black rated it liked it. 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. In this evolving environment, the task of building a successful compiler relies upon the compiler writer’s ability to balance and blend algorithms, engineering insights, and careful planning.

No longer is execution speed the sole criterion for judging compiled code. In plain english, it is just boring. Mongo rated it it was amazing Aug 28, Erdembilegt Janchivdorj rated engineeting it was amazing Oct 31, Jun 02, Qinglai rated it liked it. Anakreontas Mentis rated it it was amazing Jun 28, This is kind of the “West End” or perhaps “Goals ” of the trio they form, with the least rigorous presentation and most minimal coverage.

I read this while using the Dragon Book as a reference, and I think in the future I will definitely use the Dragon book to look up information, but this book did a much better job of explaining concepts in a non-technical way first.

Preview — Engineering a Compiler by Keith D. I cannot cpoper anyone reading this book from cover to cover. While I didn’t think that pseudocode would have particularly enriched these topics, and I Engineering a Compiler is an excellent introductory text on compilers.


Jared rated it it was amazing Dec 25, Their goal is to cover a broad enough selection of material to show readers that real tradeoffs exist, and that the impact of those choices can be both subtle and far-reaching. I particularly enjoyed the textbook’s clean layout and design and cleanly written algorithms placed very close to the paragraphs where they are relevant. Builds on this background to teach modern methods in code generation: It may be a great introduction, but I will never know.

Dmitry rated it it was amazing Oct 13, Daniel Ogburn rated it it was amazing Feb 05, 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.

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. The proliferation of engineernig, environments, and constraints on systems has cast compiler technology into a wider variety of settings, changing the compiler and compiler writer’s role.
