Hello everyone,


I want to start doing some research on compiler construction and was
wondering what programming language you guys use or would like to use
to implement a compiler. I know a bit of C/C++ and 'a little' Pascal
but was reading and it seems Modula-2 and Objective CaML get alot of
thumbs up in this department.


Thoughts?

[Depends on what your goals are. These days I write most of my programs in
perl because they run fast enough for my purposes, and the built in data
types and all the public libraries make me a lot more productive than in
low level languages like C or C++. On the other hand, if I were writing
a compiler to ship to a thousand other sites, I'd probably write it in C
or C++. -John]
