So you want books on tools, not on compiler construction
in general. My old favorite is the LCC book, where the
code generator takes a machine description and uses that
in code generation. I don't remember that it uses special
tools for the parser or lexer.
Otherwise, for books about compilers...
It seems that there is a new Aho, ... book as of Aug. 2006:
one by Louden from 1996, which also still seems to be in print, but
might use yacc.
Engineering a Compiler, Cooper & Torczon,
Advanced Compiler Design by Muchnick
Crafting a Compiler with C, Fischer & LeBlanc
Modern Compiler Implementation in Java, Appel & Palsberg
Those are from putting compiler into amazon.com with the category
set to books. It looks like they are in print.
also, The Compiler Design Handbook: Optimizations and Machine
Code Generation, Second Edition by Srikant & Shankar,
I don't know more about them than from the Amazon web site, but
some sound like they might be good. (though not cheap.)
[Most of those books are long out of print; Amazon keeps them in the catalog
in case someone wants to sell a used copy. But thanks nonetheless. -John]
