Good day, Was wondering if someone might direct me toward a comprehensive forum, site, etc. that dealt with creating compilers. Not Visual C/C++ caliber but something simpler with which an at-home coder might have fun playing around? Thanks, c3019

Why not do a scripting language with a virtual machine? You won''t have to kill yourself learning assembly hehe

Thanks for the tipoff.
But is there anything else that doesn''t cost $70 used?

Thnx anyway,

Abebooks.com has it for $30 (according to pricegrabber). This book is considered a classic intodructory text to this subject, so it would probably be worth your money.

I might be wrong but I believe there is a compiler (compiles to MSIL not ASM) in Microsofts SSCLI (aka Rotor) package. Search their MSDN site for it, it includes source code for a sample .Net CLR, many many tools, and I believe at least 1 compiler.

Why would you need to know assembly to write a compiler?
