The authors present updated coverage of compilers based on research and techniques that have been developed in the field over the past few years.

Where computer organization and design showed the rock bottom of computing, Aho has built a submarine necessary to descending to those depths. This allegorical submarine is old and sometimes creaky, but its iron hull shows no sign of breaking up despite the rapid changes happening on the surface.
Apr 03, David rated it really liked it Shelves: mathematical-me , nonfiction , code-monkey. There are certain books that everyone in a relevant technical field knows. The Dragon Book is another fine example, despite this odd reputation it has for being too dryly theoretical.
We used it when I took compilers, and I've used it as a reference for myself when working on or teaching about compilers and interpreters. When I taught compilers, we used Appel's Modern Compiler Implementati There are certain books that everyone in a relevant technical field knows.
Mar 05, Carpii rated it it was amazing Shelves: tech , own. Meat and potatoes for any aspiring software engineer. Despite its age, this book still gives a fairly solid understanding of parser, compiler and optimisation techniques. Its pretty dry, and heavy reading, but it shows you techniques you'll still be referring back to years later.
Damned boring. The fact that this edition uses Java for much of its code doesn't help, but it actually doesn't hurt nearly as much as you might expect; too bad that's only because it's very light on working code samples. If you somehow make it through the first eight chapters, the last four are more interesting if more uneven , but not sufficiently so to salvage the whole book.
Aug 15, Richard Callaby rated it it was amazing. This book can be a bit esoteric and hard to understand. There are several other books that go into greater detail that can help fill in the gaps that are left out of this book.
I wouldn't read this book by itself to gain enough knowledge to really grasp the subject. As well, there are many good open source compilers I would recommend anyone download and examine to understand how a compiler works in this modern age. This is a book you keep on your shelf to impress other geeks who may pass by. With This book can be a bit esoteric and hard to understand. With that being said I would recommend everyone who is serious about the subject get it as it is pretty good despite what I said above.
Jul 09, Frederic Desgreniers rated it really liked it Shelves: computer-science , compilers. Really good book that helps understand how compilers work. However, it's very heavy reading and somewhat outdated compared to alternatives. Would still recommend for anyone that wants to get into compilers. May 03, Lane Surface rated it it was amazing. Currently reading, but overall this book is very digestible for me.
I haven't found myself easily lost. The language used is clear and comprehensive. Maybe a little dry at times, though the content is quite academic in nature, so that is to be expected. Feb 24, James Dixson rated it really liked it.
I have in fact read this book cover to cover. The modeling of Regex parsing in terms of language is among the most fundamental insights and transformative in my understanding of computer systems. Jun 17, Jie Fu rated it really liked it. I read this classic book years ago for preparing for GRE Subtest. Jul 25, Chandan Khatwani rated it it was amazing. Great book for detailed explanation of compilers. A classic but now bit dated but the basics in this field haven't changed much.
I would speculate not knowing too much yet about certain aspects of modern compiler design research yet that one would have to in order to get a full picture look at recent PLDI and POPL proceedings.
I find the text compared to say Sipser for example lacking in clarity in terms of presentation which is why I took off a star.
It's a bit too note like and driven by examples as opposed to consisting of well structured ex A classic but now bit dated but the basics in this field haven't changed much.
It's a bit too note like and driven by examples as opposed to consisting of well structured expository writing in some places. Overall the best there is though at present. Jan 21, Alfredo Amatriain rated it did not like it. I've read few technical books that make such a bad attempt at being instructive. What should be an interesting subject matter is weighted by the most convoluted and hard to follow explanations imaginable.
This book proves that it's not enough to be knowledgeable about a subject to write about it: you have to be able to lay out your ideas so they are no harder to grasp than necessary. That's where this book utterly fails. Rather theoretical take on the subject, I clearly got better understanding what compilers parsers, lexers, optimisers etc do, but I doubt I'd get far with just that knowledge.
So have a scan if you must, but looks elsewhere for practical details TODO: update the review with link to blog entry once I know where to look ;-. Jan 12, Tanzila marked it as to-read Shelves: css-computer-science.
The renowned Dragon-Book. I'm happy to own the original edition with the red dragon and the knight on its cover. The cover of the newer edition is pretty dull. I read this as part of my studies in computer-science way back when. Some people might tell you it's rather theoretical, but I don't think so. It has sparked my interest in compiler construction, formal languages and more. This interest never left me, so you can say this book was kind of a life changing read.
Update Dec. Maybe it's the words techniques and tools in the subtitle of this book? Dec 20, Zerg rated it it was ok.
Dragon Book Table of Contents
Aho , Monica S. Lam , Ravi Sethi , and Jeffrey D. Ullman about compiler construction. First published in , it is widely regarded as the classic definitive compiler technology text. It is affectionately known as the Dragon Book to generations of computer scientists   as its cover depicts a knight and a dragon in battle, a metaphor for conquering complexity. Following in the tradition of its two predecessors, the second edition features a dragon and a knight on its cover, and is informally known as the purple dragon.
