Issue No. 02 - February (1980 vol. 13)
In an era in which writing compilers is still somewhat an art, Compiler Construction: Theory and Practice goes far toward transforming this art into a science. This book is not only an instructive manual on building compilers, it is also a superior reference book. Computer science students, especially those with some professional programming experience, and their professors will find it an excellent treatment of some of the most complex material in the undergraduate curriculam. Professional compiler writers will also find the book valuable.
