If you had a six hours of lecture time to discuss compilers, what would
you cover? I'm trying to figure out the best set of topics to cover in a
small number of lectures, with the goal that by the end of the lectures
the students will have a warm and fuzzy feeling for most of the things
that go on under the hood of a compiler.
My current outline (which is very rough) looks like:
1. What is a compiler?
2. Lexical analysis
1. Intermediate representations.
2. Type checking / inference.
1. Code generation.
2. What is a compiler?
