I recently have been using a pretty good modern book: "Modern Compiler
Design" by D. Grune, H. Bal., et. al. John Wiley and Sons, New York,

It covers a number of newer topics such as "functional programs",
"logic programs, and "parallel and distributed programs". I find book
to be quite good except I am not sure of their use of threaded trees
instead of 3 address tuples as intermediate code generation
representation. Although, it is possible I am misunderstanding how
their threaded trees work. /Steve
