some time ago someone refered to the following book:
William M. Waite and Lynn Robert Carter, "An Introduction to Compiler
Has anyone read it (beside the author who recommeded it)? Is it good as an
a practical introduction to compilers?
The reason I ask it because I recentely goined the compiler development
group with almost no prior knoledge of compiler (I missed the compilation
course the university). I started on the dragon book, but its a bit too
heavy and theoretical for me, so I'm looking for something easier to start
with. Any reference is welcome.
BTW, we are working on a GNU based compiler now. If there is any reference
that explain the internals of gcc, it is welcome (beside gcc doc, which
doesn't explain on the things I need).
