Principles of Compiler Design by Aho and Ullman
From the preface:
Intended as an introductory course in compiler design at the Junior, Senior or first-year graduate level. Published in 1977.
-- GlennWilsonAlso Known As: The (Green) Dragon Book
See also: 'Compilers - Principles, Techniques and Tools', by Aho, Sethi, and Ullman. ISBN 0201100886 , published 1985 (the RedDragonBook). From the back of it:
Anyone interested in compiler design is familiar with "The Dragon Book"... Since it was first published, the state of compiler design has advanced. As a result, Addison-Wesley announces the birth of a new dragon. (The Dragon Book they refer to is the GreenDragon, obviously...however the term TheDragonBook without a color nowadays usually referes to the RedDragonBook)
I guess the world has moved on a lot since that book too. Any advance?
