    1. The first few sections focus on parsing and context-free grammars and the like, and so might be rough going for all of us who nearly flunked algebra (like me, cough). After that, there's a wealth of detail on everything from abstract syntax trees to garbage collected memory management. I found out after the fact that there's other editions of this book that use Java and ML instead of C, and that the original (using ML) is less painful to read because the code examples aren't cluttered with the k [...]

    2. Good book and introduction to the compiler build phases. Helped me a lot during the semester course. But, unfortunately, some times too much related to the tiger programing language. Chapter tasks are not all clear to understand.
