5.0 out of 5 stars Very good if you already know about the topic, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Language Implementation Patterns: Create Your Own Domain-Specific and General Programming Languages (Pragmatic Programmers) (Paperback)
Very useful book for people with a computer science background. Lots of things are taken for granted (Java, grammar definition, data structures, ...).

If you have used flex/bison (yacc/lex) this book will open your eyes to new modern technologies for language implementation

I find the writing style quite refreshing. I never felt bored while reading the book. The way the book is organized into patterns make it very easy to consume. Once you get used to the structure it is very easy to jump back and forth looking for the pattern that will solve your problem.

I'd recommend it to professionals rather than programming hobbyists.

Perfect in combination with the "dragon" book.
