Well, there are Andrew Appel's
'Modern Compiler Implementation in ML' and
'Modern Compiler Implementation in ML: Basic Techniques', and
ofcourse Simon Peyton Jones and Davide Lester's book on
'Implementing functional languages: a tutorial' that just happens
to be available online at
http://research.microsoft.com/Users/simonpj/Papers/pj-lester-book/


HTH.


Doei, Arthur.
