They say that a picture paints a thousand words, not unlike a coding example of a working driver; something which the author almost immediately admits was not his brief: I.E to give an actual example. Personally, I would have found such - on omission - irritating even if I did read the book when it was young and fresh. However, the style of writing is relaxed; and that is to its credit.

I read it 30 years ago when I worked on my bachellor thesis, it was very clear and useful; after reading it I got convinced I could write a compiler.
Excellent book which still remains excellent

This was one of the best books I read when I was a student 25 years ago. You really understand how to write compilers after reading it. It is invaluable for those who learn programming. I believe it contributed greatly to turning me into a professional programmer. It's a shame that this book is not available any more...

I used this book in my undergraduate studies (Computer Science) at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. It was very good. The main thing we had against it, back at UNN, was the font used. But once you get used to the fonts the rest becomes easy.

Many years ago I used this book to build a compiler which generated test cases for a complex real-time system. The result was a syntax-oriented, single-pass, context independent, processor with no restricted variables. It all worked as described in the book. I believe the construction concepts are still valid, mutatis mutandis. Simply disregard the language anachronisms.
