Rezension bezieht sich auf: Virtual Machine Design and Implementation C/C++ (Taschenbuch)
This is the first book I became aware of that describes in detail many of the important issues one encounters when it comes to building a virtual machine.
Blunden performs a walkthrough and deals with memory management, machine architectures, I/O handling etc. Every single one of the topics is covered in "depth" - to a certain degree, of course, but there are literature lists at the end of each chapter that provide links for further reading.
All in all, the book is very well and clearly written and understandable. Still, two very important issues are not covered in the implementation of the presented virtual machine: garbage collection and thread management are only briefly introduced, but there are no implementation guidelines as can be found for any other topic.
