3. Course contents *

This course discusses the structure of a typical compiler for an imperative language. First we focus on a precise specification of the task to be carried out by a compiler: for the various syntactical constructs of the source language a translation is given in terms of code for a (virtual) target machine, and we specify how these pieces of code are combined into a complete target program. Then the different phases of the translation process are discussed in more detail, including the formal techniques that support them: automata and context-free grammars, LL and LR parsing, attribute grammars.
