Hey all,
                      I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions on
books on compiler design that don't deal as heavily with tool use.
i.e. something geared more towards the hobbyist who wants to learn to
write the entire thing without useing for example Lex and Yacc or
similiar tools. I have Aho Sethi and Ullmans Compilers Principles,
Techniques and Tools. And Ronald Maks "Writing Compilers &
Interpreters, an Applied Aproach" Which I am thoroughly enjoying,
though it is rather old but would like advice on books dealing
specifically with writing the compilers and not relying on any tools
other than the compiler you choose to build it with to begin with.
Thank you in advance for any responce.
