The Dragon is the standard text but...., 15. Januar 1998
"The Dragon" is the standard text on compiler theory and practices, and a must to have in your library if you are into compiler writing. It covers all what could be referred as the fundamentals of compiler engineering. When I first got my copy of it, late 1986 it soon became my number one reference, although I had most of the other compiler titles as well on my bookshelves. It completely covered my needs for a reference in those days, from parsing through global optimization.
But on the negative side. It can no longer be considered as a the complete reference as it used to be. Due to it's age, it is obviously missing totally on today's advanced topics, specially on native code optimization for the state of the art super-pipelined, super-scalar RISC architectures, and special issues concerning object oriented languages of today, and technologies like JIT compilation.
