I very recently re-read parts of the "dragon book" ("Compilers:
Principles, Techniques, and Tools"). Although I know it is a reference
book, I found it to err too much on then side of the theory and to neglect
I also took a second look at parts of Holub's "Compiler in C" which had
been heavily used in my compilers course last year. It really was a lot
more pragmatic than the dragon book, but I found the code generation part
rather disappointing, especially since what was generated was "c-code" and
not some real assembly language. Moreover, code optimization was totally
skipped, if memory serves me.
So, here I am: I am looking for a book which would be a good mix of those
two books, i.e. a book that would combine the theoretical aspects and some
implementation examples for a reasonably real compiler (generating
assembly code for 680X0 or SPARC, for example).
Am I asking too much, or is this little wonder available somewhere ?
Thanks a lot in advance,
