I just purchased a book A Small C Compiler (details below) which
not only is a functional C compiler, but the source code is also included.
While the compiler is not fully compatible with C, whatever is created
using it is upward compatible to full C.
The main reason I got it was for learning how to create a compiler.
The source code for the compiler is included and the book is very good at
describing what is found in the code and how the compiler works. Since it
is based on a subset of C, one can test one's programming skills by making
the compiler fully C compatible. The compiler does compile itself, which
means you don't need to have anything other than the included disk to get
Details on the book:
Topics covered in the book include:
1. Generated code
2. Data structures
3. Front & Back end
4. Parsing (high and low levels)
5. Optimization techniques
