The book of Ronald Mak is simply excellent.It develops very clearly the techniques to build a parser,an interpreter, a source-level debugger and a compiler for theJava Virtual Machine, all directed for the standard Pascal language.The design of Ronald Mak is very modular build upon robustsoftware engineering methodologies and the developed modules can be easilycustomized (e.g. by extending the Pascal language) and can be readilyutilized in other similar application domains (e.g. implementing specialpurpose languages by replacing only the Pascal scanner and parser).The parser is a top-down one, easily understandable.Mak produces an intermediate code representation of the program, that is Pascalindependent, and thus both the presented source-level debugger, interpreter and JVMcompiler are kept independent of the Pascal language,since they operate on the AbstractSyntax Tree based intermediate code representation.The Java code of the book is very elegant and understandable.The design of the interactive source level debugger and of the compiler targeted at theJava Virtual Machine are also of outstanding quality.As the author also declares, the book is more for the one who wants toimplement compilers than for the compiler theorist. For the student or engineer whowants to realize interpreters/compilers, the book is magnificent.
This book was just what I needed to refresh my fading memory of compiler design skills. And this one is cross-platform, as the code is written in Java.The book goes step by step in developing a full Pascal interpreter and then compiler. Highly recommended!!
Not the best book on the subject. You can, however, learn something if you are willing to go through this book. I say "willing to go through this book" because the writing style is dull; reading the book becomes boring at times. To wrap it up: the book (along with the full source code online) contains valuable information, but the way this information is presented to the reader is not as good as it should.
It is filled with actual working code, so that a practical Software engineer can see what is happening as the chapters incrementally add to what has been developed in earlier chapters.There is not a large emphasis on theory, and while necessary at some point, it allows for a more grounded approach to learning from a working code perspective. Allowing theory to be learned after the fact, once code has been seen in action.Well written and well structured.
