1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of attribute grammars as
        compared to context free grammars?

2. What are the factors should you consider when choosing among the
        possible Assembler code sequence your compiler should generate?

3. How do you evaluate 2 compilers (say borland c and gnu C

4. What is involved in a evaluation of a compiler design?

Just want some simple answers and ideas.

Thanks in advance.

[Proposed answers: 1) handles some semantics as well as syntax, requires
more formal design (which you may consider good or bad). 2) correctness,
speed, and size, 3) use them to compile and run actual programs you care
about, 4) typically a bunch of people sitting around with cold cups of
coffee saying "duh, looks OK to me." -John]
