Great question. I too find most of the compiler books too introductory
and too focused on the front end (parsing, sigh). Thanks for your
question, it prompted me to check whatever happed to the Dragon book.
Apparently, the 2nd edition is due to be released THE DAY AFTER
TOMORROW! (cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/21st_Century_Compilers and
I'd really like to see a compiler book more focused (or even based) on
the value dependency graph or the thinned gated single-assignment form
as presented by Paul Havlak. (Randy Allen's "Optimizing Compilers for
Modern Architectures: A Dependence-based Approach" didn't fit the bill
in spite of the the promising title).
Finally, I have been meaning to check out Y.N. Srikant et al "The
Compiler Design Handbook: Optimizations & Machine Code Generation". Any
feedback on this book would be appreciated.
