The authors' compiler generator is a translator-writing system (TWS) based on their derivative of PL/I called XPL. Of course, XPL is designed to be self-compiling. The book can be viewed either as a User's Manual for the XPL system or as an introduction to the construction of TWS's. These dual approaches complement each other since one provides the illustration of the theoretical principles studied in the other.
