Compiler Compilers Resources - Programming On Unix

Users browsing this thread: 1 Guest(s)
Hi there,

I was wondering about the books you'd recommend to learn about tools like lex and yacc, and its different successors (i.e. bison, flex, byacc, maybe some other here...).

I've found a couple of books, plus the manpages are always one of the best resources (if not the best), but with things like compiler design and architecture, context-free grammars and lexical analysis, I think there's a lot to get wrong.

I'm not thinking about building a very complex compiler, with optimization engines and the like, just something simple to manipulate text and perform some operations and I considered it was a very good time to learn lex and yacc properly, instead of using the common stream manipulation tools available on Unices.

What do you think? What are your experiences?

See you around :)
