I was merely trying to write down what my current (pitiful) skills in
language and compiler design were so others (like for example
yourself, or the moderator) would have an easier time figuring out
what would be an appropriate title. It goes without saying that if the
killer, must-have book dealt with, for example, functional rather than
imperative languages, I would get that. (I realise the example is
contrived to say the least as the two types are very different, but I
hope the point is clear.)

Fraser/Hanson, Wilhelm/Maurer and then either Muchnick or Wirth. Check. My
sincere thanks to you both.
