I bought the book when it first became available (about two and a half months
ago, if my memory serves me). I like it O.K.--it explains things in a way
which I can understand (I'm not a compiler scholar), and the example programs
are detailed and interesting. And, of course, knowing that the author has an
e-mail address and reads comp.compilers is a big plus.
However, I really wish I had waited a few months to buy the book. The copy I
have has a whole lot of typographical errors...not only are the errors
distracting, but also I feel like a sucker for having forked over my US$50 for
the book before Prentice- Hall bothered to run a spelling-checker over the
God willing, they might have done so by now.
