This textbook describes all phases of a modern compiler, including current techniques in code generation and register allocation, for imperative, functional and object-oriented languages. In a concise and practical way the author describes the fundamentals of compilation and then moves on to advanced topics such as SSA form, loop scheduling, and optimization for cache-memory hierarchies.

Modern Compiler Implementation in Java Summary


Modern Compiler Implementation in Java by Andrew W. Appel (Princeton University, New Jersey)

This textbook describes all phases of a compiler: lexical analysis, parsing, abstract syntax, semantic actions, intermediate representations, instruction selection via tree matching, dataflow analysis, graph-coloring register allocation, and runtime systems. It includes good coverage of current techniques in code generation and register allocation, as well as the compilation of functional and object-oriented languages, that is missing from most books. The most accepted and successful techniques are described concisely, rather than as an exhaustive catalog of every possible variant, and illustrated with actual Java classes. This second edition has been extensively rewritten to include more discussion of Java and object-oriented programming concepts, such as visitor patterns. A unique feature is the newly redesigned compiler project in Java, for a subset of Java itself. The project includes both front-end and back-end phases, so that students can build a complete working compiler in one semester.

Modern Compiler Implementation in Java Reviews


From reviews of the first edition... 'One of the first compiler texts that presents, at an undergraduate level, developments from the mid-1980's onward ... This breakdown of topics is a good reflection of where a compiler writer's time actually goes.' Dr. Dobb's Journal
'Serves its intended purpose as a classroom textbook, fitting comfortably and usefully between cookbooks and encyclopedias on compilation ... also suitable for self-study.' Computing Reviews
'... I recommend this book as a textbook for both beginning and advanced compiler courses ... a well-written book, which strictly adheres to a no-nonsense style, and therefore is a pleasure to read.' Computing Reviews
"...fit[s] comfortably and usefully between cookbooks and encyclopedias on compilation...suitable for self-study." Computing Reviews
