Advanced Compiler Design and Implementation by Steven S. Muchnick

I picked it up to learn Mesa, I picked it up to learn Mesa, which still uses these older methods. SSA is the modern paradigm, and this book does not cover desiggn adequately. I love this book, and I want to do the exercises in the book. Where can I find the answers of the exercises in the book?

One person found this helpful. Compiler development is more of a craft than a science, although there’s plenty of science involved. It involves huge numbers of tradeoffs in features, optimizations, and use of the underlying processor. But, as long as people keep coming up with new computing platforms and not just instruction set processorsnew languages, and new performance demands there will always jmplementation need for new compiler developers.

If you can’t apprentice dessign to masters of the craft, or even if you can, this book is a great introduction era compiler development.


Advanced compiler design and implementation / Steven S. Muchnick – Details – Trove

Muchnik does a clear, thorough job of laying out the basics, starting with the intermediate representation used. If you get that wrong, nothing else is going to work. He then moves on to the anx of symbol table structure advnaced an issue that can get immensely complicated in systems like Microsoft’s CLR. He also discusses run time support briefly. Although that discussion is good as far as it goes, it skips past a lot of the complexities of dynamic loading, debug impoementation tables, simulation support, and related issues.

They aren’t strictly part of the compiled, executable code, but responsibilities of the compiler developer nonetheless. Next comes implwmentation brief description of code generation, crucial in normal environments but tangential to my own needs. That’s just the first quarter of the book, though.

The rest is the real meat of the topic: It’s way too much to summarize here, but even that just an introduction to a huge technology. Still, you have to start somewhere.

By this compilrr, you may be asking “But what about tokens, lexemes, and grammars? Isn’t that what compilers do? Tool developers have made lexical analysis a commodity. The easily automated tasks are not where modern compiler distinguishes itself.

This book addresses the semantic levels, getting the reader into the shallow end of the industry’s huge pool of specialized compilation knowledge.

If you have to self-teach compiler development – good luck.

Advaanced here, though, and luck will have a lot less to do with the outcome. I have been working on language processors, interpreters and compilers for almost twenty years. I try to order all the books that have something unique to say about compiler design and implementation.

This is one of the best books I have seen on advanced compiler design. I have owned it since it was mkchnick published. Going back and rereading it I am reminded of what and excellent book it is, which is what motivated this review.

Advanced compiler design deals with various forms of optimization, including local, global and loop optimization. No single book can provide complete coverage of all optimization issues. However, this book, along with Allen and Kennedy’s equally excellent “Optimizing Compilers for Modern Architectures” covers almost everything you need to know. One of the problems with the academic literature on compiler optimization is that it can be unnecessarily obscure.


Muchnick writes clearly, with the implementer in mind. He provides a wide range of techniques, allowing the implementer to choose the correct one for a given compiler.

This approach is both useful and necessary: Muchnick covers everything you need to know about local and global scalar optimization, including scalar optimization in loops and optimization for modern processor architecture. The only thing missing implementtaion an indepth coverage of loop dependence and optimization techniques, which is provided by Allen and Kennedy.

If you are working on the design, implementation or extension of a modern compiler, this book should be part of your library. Coverage of many important topics, and a better discussion of the phase ordering issues than I’ve seen in other texts.

The writing style is okay, but not great. Little insight is typically given for the problems discussed. A very annoying aspect of the book is that the author sometimes mkchnick into great detail about one technique, and then later mentions another often superior, IMO way to solve the problem at hand, without going into much detail. As a working compiler writer, I would have preferred it be the other way around. The very very bad: The ICAN notation used throughout the book is verbose, unintuitive, and ultimately takes away from the presentation.
