So I have been reading "Writing Compilers and Interpreters (Mak)" for a while now and it is not all clicking for me. Does anyone know of an additonal online resources that would supplement this book? I guess basically I am looking for some good web-sites on compilers and interpretes. Thanks Chad

You can try reading this:
http://compilers.iecc.com/crenshaw/
Its imho essential reading when you first start researching this topic. Also if your interested in using flex/bison (or lex/yacc) then you can look at the flipcode scripting tutorials http://www.flipcode.com/articles/scripting_issue01.shtml.
Also when you talk to anyone about compiler design, the book 'Compilers: principles, techniques and tools' will always come into the conversation its arguably the best book on the subject, but I found it quite full on when I started to think about writing a compiler.

Finally, just keep at it just off of an interest in compiler design I have picked up many other general programming skills, its certainly made me a better coder.

What is weird to me (more so I just don't know better) is that almost every source I find is really old. I guess that has to do with things not changing that much in regards to compilers and interpreters.
