The latest Prentice-Hall catalogue lists two new books

Compiling in Modula-2 - a first introduction to classical recursive descent

        0-13-088741-2 by JR Ullmann of King's College, London UK

Compiler Construction - a recursive descent model

        0-13-291139-6 by John Elder of Queens University, Belfast

I'm a long way from a decent bookstore, so it's hard to have a look. Anyone
have any opinions on these two yet?

I have a particular interest, because both use Modula-2 (as we do here) and
I am in the process of rewriting my own book to use Modula-2
