Engineering a Compiler

Presents examples in several different programming languages in order to best illustrate the concept. Engineering a Compiler explores this design space by presenting some of the ways these problems have been solved, and the constraints that made each of those solutions attractive.

Megs rated it really liked it Nov 15, Particularly after reading Muchnick, I found the amount of text explanation with a lack of concrete examples to be disturbing.

Dmitry rated it it was amazing Oct 13, Alright book if you are looking for a good overview of compiler concepts. I particularly enjoyed the textbook’s clean layout and design and cleanly written algorithms placed very close to the paragraphs where they are relevant. Muhammad Shan rated it really liked it Jan 07, Anakreontas Mentis rated it it was amazing Jun 28, Arul rated it did not like it Aug 19, Sigh, such is life!

Refresh and try again. Zhongyue Lin rated it it was amazing Apr 21, Builds on this background to teach modern methods in code generation: Jeremy rated it really liked it Jun 28, Their goal is to cover a broad enough selection of material to show readers that real tradeoffs exist, and that the impact of those choices can be both subtle and far-reaching.


Their text re-balances the curriculum for an introductory course in compiler construction to reflect the issues that arise in current practice. No trivia enginering quizzes yet.

Engineering a Compiler by Keith D. Cooper

A lit bit boring, filled with well-known facts, very engineerjng front-end. LadyFivestar rated it it was amazing Nov 29, Today’s compiler ekith must choose a path through a design space that is filled with diverse alternatives, each with distinct costs, advantages, and complexities.

Preview — Engineering a Compiler by Keith D. The problems with books like this is that they skim over topics not going deep into the subject ever. Books by Keith D.

Jun 02, Qinglai rated it liked it. I cannot see anyone reading this book from cover to cover. While I didn’t think that pseudocode would have particularly enriched these topics, and I could certainly look up the relevant papers provided in the bibliography, I found the lack of a concrete representation to work with left me somehow wanting more.

All in all I suggest Engineering a Compiler as an excellent candidate for easy entry into a discussion on compilers, or an undergraduate text. Sana Omar rated it it was amazing Jan 01, Engineering a Compiler is an keigh introductory text engibeering compilers. To ask other readers questions about Engineering a Compilerplease sign up.

Engineering a Compiler, Second Edition

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Introduces the student to optimization through data-flow analysis, SSA form, and a selection of scalar optimizations.


In this evolving environment, the task of building a successful compiler relies upon the compiler writer’s ability to balance and blend algorithms, engineering insights, and careful planning. While I didn’t think that pseudocode would have particularly enriched these topics, and I Engineering a Compiler is an excellent introductory text on compilers.

Engineering a Compiler is the default follow up for Engineering students after having just completed theory of computer science course laying common foundation with pure science.

I think we’re using this in CS only because so many MS students are gormless waste-wits, admitted only to collect some tuition I’m coming to loathe introducing myself as an MS student; until I start my PhD, I’m going to stick with “principal engineer, mcafee” and only admit I’m also a student when prodded.

Today, code might be judged on how small it is, how much power it consumes, how well it compresses, or how many page faults it generates. And yet it is not a reference. Authors Keith Cooper dngineering Linda Torczon convey both the art and the science of compiler construction and show best practice coooper for the major passes of a compiler. Aug 12, Dave rated it really liked it Shelves: Hardcoverpages. Karthi rated it liked it Jan 03, Focuses on the back end of the compiler–reflecting the focus of research and development over the last decade.
