> Can somebody recommend a compiled language that is easy to learn?
I'd have thought C would be quite good for this purpose (which I
assume is to learn about compilation), especially an old-fashioned
'Kernighan & Ritchie' C compiler. I'm not a fan of C as a working
language, but for study it has the advantage of (relative) simplicity.
Also, an old, simple Pascal compiler would probably be worth study.
Possibly the P-System (which should also be of interest to anyone
developing a JVM or something similar).
Actually, I think there is great value in studying one or two real
compilers, in addition to reading textbooks.
