Someone in comp.lang.c is interested in understanding how a 40 years
old C compilers works, but doesn't know much about compilers.
Seems to me that one way to learn is to read 40 year old compiler books.
I still have http://www.amazon.com/dp/047132776X (Gries) that I bought
about 35 years ago, but that might not be the best to understand
So, I wonder (cross post replies) about favorite 40 year old compiler
books, especially if written using C-like languages for examples, or
otherwise better than average for understanding C compilers.
Most should be availabl for low prices on the used book market.
Gries is $0.01 plus $3.99 for shipping.
For a description of the development of C, and a few other languages,
one might look at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1578700094 only about 15
years old, and available used starting at $0.80 (plus shipping).
