Thanks very much for keeping me straight. Apologies to Allen Holub.
Despite the editorial problems of the book, I've learned much by
reviewing the code therein. Once you've understood it, you can tackle
e.g. bison and flex without much trouble, then similar tools including
emacs and gcc. I recommend this chain for learning. It's something
like the coders' equivalent of an artist studying the old masters.
