Two I haven't seen mentioned before are (sorry I don't have the exact titles,
but I don't have the books with me just know):
... something about Parsing: Theory and Practice ...
Roland C. Backhouse
Talks about parsing only. Use graph-theory techniques,
with a lot of stuff about good error-recovery. I wrote
one parser this way and found it was slow, but it's quite
interesting. Mostly deals with top-down parsing.
Compiler Design Theory (I think that's it)
Lewis, Rosenkrantz, and Stearns.
Good coverage of LL techniques. Also covers code generation,
etc, though not extensively, and not particularly with the
most up-to-date ideas. Uses mini-BASIC as a sample language
(ugh). I thought it was pretty clear though, with lots
of practical info.
