Does any one have figures for the proportion of total compile time
spent in lexical analysis, syntax analysis, semantic analysis, code
generation and optimisation?
[It varies a lot by compiler. For Ken Thompson's Plan 9 C compiler, he said
that the Yacc parser took as much time as everything else put together, 25%
for low-level character bashing and 75% for Yacc slowness. This is quite
unusual, and his is an extremely fast compiler. -John]
