Leverett, B.W., R.G.G. Cattell, S.O. Hobbs, J.M. Newcomer, A.H. Reiner,
B.R. Schatz, and W.A. Wulf: "An Overview of the Production Quality
Compiler-Compiler Projects," IEEE Computer, Vol. 13, No. 8,
August 1980, pp. 38-49.
This is derived from the CMU Technical Report CMU-CS-79-105, published by
the same authors, with the same title, in 1979. I found the reference in
the final chapter of the Tremblay and Sorenson text, "The Theory and Practice
of Compiler Writing," the final chapter of which is a good exposition of
compiler-compiler projects. See pp. 743ff.
Also, once I had the reference, I noticed that it IS in the Dragon book
bibliography, page 769 of the 1986 edition, and presumably in the same
place in the 1988 printing (which I don't have, unfortunately.) If you
scanned for "PQCC" you wouldn't see it, however, as the abbreviation is
expanded in the reference title. It isn't in the Fischer text.
