gcc guide


hi everybody

i was just wondering the other day about compilers and how they work. does anybody know of a good guide to building compilers? something that gave me a guide to the inner-workings of the gcc, for example. i tried googling, but could only find instructions for using the gcc.

gcc is a very complex lump of software. It can compile multiple languages, cross compile etc. For learning, it might be less daunting to start with something simpler.

Jack Crenshaw wrote very good tutorials on compilers. His tutorials were 'learn-by-doing' alike. I cannot find them on internet. They are indexed, but apparently, the links are broken. I have them in an archive, but I don't know how to send them to you(maybe an e-mail address?).
Although the tutorials are written in 1988, don't let them fool you. They are very good for learning the basics. I hope this helps..

cool, thanks

Jack Crenshaw's use of turbo pascal will probably cause nightmares for me before i've finished reading the tutorial though
