I'm currently evaluating the book "Crafting a Compiler with C" by Fischer
& LeBlanc for use in a course, and am interested in using the software
they distribute with the instructor's guide as a basis for the programming
I'd be grateful for answers to the following questions from anybody who
has tried this:
1) Did it work well in your course? Is the code stable enough for students
to be able to deal with it? Or is there something else that's easily
available and works better?
2) What did the Benjamin/Cummings folks send you? Six 5.25" floppies with
sources for IBM-PC Pascal, Modula-II and C? Or something more
useful in a UNIX environment? If the floppies, did the second C
disk actually contain the expected compiler development tools?
Does the C version work under UNIX?
As is probably obvious, I'm about to struggle to get a coherent
distribution of this from Benjamin/Cummings, and just want to check in
advance that I'm not wasting time. Perhaps I could just get any replies by
e-mail and post a summary?
Many thanks in advance,
