This makes the job of allocation particularly easy for the compiler writer, as no code needs to be generated to maintain the environment.
Second, Pascal, C, and other so-called Algol-like languages allow a limited form of dynamic allocation and recursive function calls and require a "semidynamic" or stack-based runtime environment with an additional dynamic-structure called a heap from which the programmer can schedule dynamic allocation. Finally, functional and most object-oriented languages, such as LISP and Smalltalk, require a "fully dynamic" environment in which all allocation is performed automatically by code generated by the compiler.
This is complicated, because it requires that memory also be freed automatically, and this in tum requires complex "garbage collection" algorithms.

We will survey such methods along with our study of runtime enviromnents, but a complete account of this area is beyond the scope of this book. An important aspect of compiler construction is the inclusion of mechanisms for interfacing with the operating system and for providing options to the user for various purposes.
Examples of interface mechanisms are the provision of input and output facilities as well as access to the file system of the target machine. Examples of user options include the specification of listing characteristics length, error messages, cross-reference tables and code optimization options performance of certain optimizations but not others. Both interfacing and options are collectively referred to as compiler pragmatics. Sometimes a language definition will specify that certain pragmatics must be provided.
In Ada, anumber of compiler directives, called pragmas, are part of the language definition. In this text we will see compiler directives only in the context of generating listing information for compiler debugging purposes. Errors can be detected during almost every phase of compilation. These static or compile-time errors must be reported by a compiler, and it is important that a compiler be able to generate meaningful error messages and resume compilation after each error.
Each phase of a compiler will need a slightly different kind of error handling, and so an error handler must contain different operations, each appropriate for a specific phase and situation. Error handling techniques for each phase will therefore be studied separately in the appropriate chapter.
A language definition will usually require not only that static errors be caught by a compiler but also that certain execution errors be caught as well. This requires a compiler to generate extra code that will perfonn suitable runtime tests to guarantee that all such errors will cause an appropriate event during execution.
The simplest such event will halt the execution of the program. Often, however, this is inadequate, and a language definition may require the presence of exception handling mechanisms. These can substantially complicate the management of a runtime system, especially if a program may continue to execute from the point where the error occurred.
We will not consider the implementation of such a mechanism, but we will show how a compiler can generate test code to ensure that specified runtime errors will cause execution to halt. But we have not mentioned the third language involved in the compiler construction process: the language in which the compiler itself is written. For the compiler to execute immediately, this implementation or host language would have to be machine language. This was indeed how the first compilers were written, since essentially no compilers existed yet.
A more reasonable approach today is to write the compiler in another language for which a compiler already exists. If the existing compiler already runs on the target machine, then we need only compile the new compiler using the existing compiler to get a running program:. Compilation then produces a cross compiler, that is, a compiler that generates target code for a different machine from the one on which it runs. This and other more complex situations are best de- scribed by drawing a compiler as a T-diagnun named after its shape.
A compiler. Note that this is equivalent to saying that the compiler runs on "machine" H if H is not machine cOde, then we consider it to be the executable code for a hypothetical machine. Typically, we expect H to be the same as T that is, the compiler produces code for the same machine as the one on which it runs , but this needn't be the case. T -diagrams can be combined in two ways.
First, if we have two compilers that run on the same machine H, one of which translates language A to language B and the other of which translates language B to language C, then we can combine them by letting the output of the first be the input to the second. The result is a compiler from A to C on machine H. We express this as follows:. Second, we can use a compiler from "machine" H to "machine" K to translate the implementation language of another compiler from H to K.
Now the first scenario we described previously-that is, using an existing compiler for language Qn machine H to translate a compiler from language A to H written in B-ean be vie;ed as the following diagram, which is just a special case of the previous diagram:. While this appears to be a blunder of circularity-since, if no compiler for the source language yet exists, the compiler itself cannot be compiled-there are important advantages to be gained from this approach. Consider, for example, how we might approach the circularity problem.
We might write a "quick and dirty" compiler in assembly language, translating only those features of the language that are actually used in the compiler having, of course, limit i our use of those features when writing the "good" compiler. This "quick and dirty" compiler may also produce extremely inefficient code it only needs to be correct!
Once we have the running "quick and dirty" compiler, we use it to compile the "good" compiler. Then we recompile the "good" compiler to produce the final version. This process is called bootstrapping. This process is illustrated in Figures l. After bootstrapping, we have a compiler in both source code and executing code. The advantage to this is that any improvement to the source code of the compiler can.
But there is another advantage. Porting the compiler to a new host computer now only requires that the back end of the source code be rewritten to generate code for the new machine. This is then compiled using the old compiler to produce a cross compiler, and the compiler is again recompiled by the cross compiler to produce a working version for the new machine. This is illustrated in Figures 1.
A book on compiler construction would be incomplete without examples for each step in the compilation process. In many cases we will illustrate techniques with examples. These examples, however, are not enough to show how all the parts of a compiler fit together. For that, it is also necessary to exhibit a complete compiler and provide a commentary on its operation.
This requirement that an actual compiler be demonstrated is a difficult one. A "real" compiler-that is, one that we would expect to use in everyday programminghas far too much detail and would be overwhelming to study within the framework of a text. On the other hand, a compiler for a very small language, whose listing would comprise I0 or so pages of text, could not hope to demonstrate adequately all the features that a "real" compiler needs. We will call this language TINY and will use it as a running example for the techniques studied in each chapter. The code for its compiler will be discussed as the techniques are covered.
In this section we will give an overview of the language and its compiler. The complete compiler code is collected in Appendix B. A further problem is the choice of the machine language to use as the target language of the TINY compiler. Again, the complexity of using actual machine code for an exisiting processor makes such a choice difficult.
But the choice of a specific processor also has the effect of limiting the execution of the resulting target code to these machines. Instead, we simplify the target code to be the assembly language for a simple hypothetical processor, which we will call the TM machine for tiny machine. We will take a quick look at this machine here but will delay a more extensive description until Chapter 8 code generation. A program in TINY has a very simple structure: it is just a sequence of statements separated by semicolons in a syntax similar to that of Ada or Pascal.
There are no procedures and no declarations. There are only two control statements: an if-statement and a repeat-statement. Both control statements may themselves contain statement sequences. An if-statement has an optional else part and must be terminated by the keyword end. Comments are allowed within curly brackets; comments cannot be nested.
Boolean expressions may appear only as tests in control statements there are no Boolean variables, assign- ment, or Figure 1. We will use this program as a running example throughout the text. While TINY lacks many features necessary for real programming languages procedures, arrays, and floating-point values are some of the more serious omissions it is still large enough to exemplify most of the essential features of a compiler. The source code for these files is listed in Appendix B, with line numbers, and in the order given, except that in.
The g h header file is included in all the code files. It contains the definitions of data types and global variables used throughout the compiler. The file c contains the main prograin that drives the compiler, and it allocates and initializes the global variables. The c e, lyze, and files correspond exactly to the scanner, parser, semantic analyzer, and code generator phases of Figure 1. The util files contain utility functions needed to generate the.
The files contain a hash-table implementation of a symbol table suitable for use with TINY. The code files contain utilities for code generation that are dependent on the target machine the TM machine, described in Section 1. The remaining components of Figure 1. Also, there is no intermediate code separate from the syntax tree. Further, the symbol table interacts only with the setnantic analyzer and the code generator so we delay a discussion of it until Chapter 6.
To reduce the interaction among these files, we have also made the compiler fourpass: the first pass consists of the scanner and parser, which construct the syntax tree; the second and third passes undertake semantic analysis, with the second pass constructing the symbol table and the third pass performing type checking; the final pass is the code generator. The code in c that drives these passes is particularly simple. For flexibility, we have also built in conditional compilation flags that make it possible to build partial compilers.
The flags, with their effect, are as follows:. Builds a compiler that parses and scans only. Builds a compiler that performs semantic analysis but generates no code. Although this design for the TINY compiler is somewhat unrealistic, it has the pedagogical advantage that separate files correspond roughly to phases, and they can be discussed and compiled and executed individually in the chapters that follow. Assuming that the name of the executable file is tiny, it can be used to compile a TINY source program in the text file tny by issuing the command tiny s. This will print a program listing to the screen which can be redirected to a file and if code generation is.
There are several options for the infonnation in the compilation listing. The following flags are available: FLAG. Echoes the TINY source program to the listing together with line numbers. Displays inforn1ation on each token as the scanner recognizes it. Displays the syntax tree in a linearized format. Displays summary information on the symbol table and type checking. Prints code generation-tracing comments to the code file. We use the assembly language for this machine as the target language for the TINY compiler.
In fact, TM has some of the properties of Reduced Instruction Set Computers or RISCs , in that all arithmetic and testing must take place in registers and the addressing modes are extremely limited. To give some idea of the simplicity of this machine, we translate the code for the C expression a[index] 6. We note that there are three addressing modes for the load operation, all given by different instructions: LDC is "load constant," LD is "load from memory," and LDA is - "load address.
Since 0 was loaded into 1 register 1 in the previous instruction, this actually refers to the absolute location We also note that the arithmetic instructions IIUL and ADD can have only register operands and are "three-address" instructions, in that the target register of the result can be specified independently of the operands contrast this with the code in Section 1.
Our simulator for the TM machine reads the assembly code directly from a file and executes it.
Louden - Compiler Construction Principles and Practice_ocr_cropped
Thus, we avoid the added cpmplexity of translating the assembly language to machine code. However, our simulator is not a true assembler, in that there are no symbolic addresses or labels. Thus, the TINY compiler must still compute absolute addresses for jumps. Assuming the executable file is called it can be used by issuing the command s. This command causes the code file to be assembled and loaded; then the TM simulator can be run interactively.
For exa1nple, if ta. TN s lation er h for help BDter c.. It is a considerably restricted subset of C, which we will call C-Minus. It contains integers, integer arrays, and functions including procedures, or void func1. This is due to the simple unifonn fonnat of the TM assem- bier. It has local and global static declarations and simple recursive functions.
It has an if-statement and-; a while-statement. It lacks almost everything else. A program consists of a sequence of function and variable declarations. A function must be 2 declared last. Execution begins with a call to. C-Minus is a more complex language than TINY, particularly in its code generation requirements, but the TM machine is still a reasonable target for its compiler. Syntax errors include missing or incorrectly placed tokens, such as the missing. For consistency with other functions in C-Minus, is declared as a void function with a void parameter list. Semantic errors include incorrect types in expressions and undeclared variables in most languages , such as the assignment z 2, where z is an array variable.
Give two more examples of errors of each kind in a language of your choice. Pick a compiler with which you are familiar and determine if it lists all syntax errors before semantic errors or if syntax and semantic errors are intermixed. What implication does this have for the number of passes? Determine if your compiler perfornts constant folding optimizations. A related but more advanced optimization is that of constant propagation: a variable that currently has a constant value is replaced by that value in expressions.
For example, the code inC syntax X. Determine if your compiler performs constant propagation. Give as many reasons as you can why constant propagation is more difficult than constant folding. A situation related to constant propagation and constant folding is the use of named constants in a program. Using a named constant x instead of a variable, we can translate the above example as the following C code: conat int x 4;. How is this different from part b? If your compiler will accept input directly from the keyboard, detennine if your compiler reads the entire program before generating error messages or generates error messages as it encounters them.
Describe the tasks perfonned by the following programs, and explain how these programs resemble or are related to compilers: b. A pretty-printer c. A text forntatter a. A language preprocessor Suppose you have a Pascal-to-e translator written inC and a working C compiler. Use T-diagrams to describe the steps you would take to create a working Pascal compiler.
Give a practical example of the reduction described by this diagram. Such a method is used by the Pascal P-system, which includes a Pascal compiler that produces P-code, a kind of assembly code for a "generic" stack machine, and a P-code interpreter that simulates the execution of the P-code. Both the Pascal compiler and the P-code interpreter are written in P-code. Describe the steps needed to obtain a working Pascal compiler on an arbitrary machine, given a Pascal P-system. Describe the steps needed to obtain a working native-code compiler from your system in a i.
Discuss the distinctness of these two operations in terms of T-diagrams. Most of the topics mentioned in this chapter are treated in more detail in subsequent chapters, and the Notes and References of those chapters will provide suitable references. For instance, Lex is studied in Chapter 2; Yacc in Chapter 5; type checking, symbol tables, and attribute analysis in Chapter 6; code generation, three-address code, and P-code in Chapter 8; and error handling in Chapters 4 and 5.

This text focuses on standard translation techniques useful for the translation of most languages. Additional techniques may be needed for efficient translation of languages outside the main tradition of Algol-based imperative languages.
In particular, the translation of functional languages such as ML and Haskell has been the source of many new techniques, some of which may become important general techniques in the future. Descriptions of these techniques can be found in Appel , Peyton Jones , and Peyton Jones . The latter contains a description of Hindley-Milner type checking mentioned in Section 1. The scanning, or lexical analysis, phase of a compiler has the task of reading the source program as a file of characters and dividing it up into tokens.
Tokens are like the words of a natural language: each token is a sequence of characters that represents a unit of information in the source program. In each case a token represents a certain pattern of characters that is recognized, or matched, by the scanner from the beginning of the remaining input characters. Since the task performed by the scanner is a special case of pattern matching, we need to study methods of pattern specification and recognition as they apply to the scanning process. These methods are primarily those of regular expressions and finite automata.
However, a scanner is also the part of the compiler that handles the input of the source code, and since this input often involves a significant time overhead, the scanner must operate as efficiently as possible. Thus, we need also to pay dose attention to the practical details of the scanner structure.
We divide the study of scanner issues as follows.
Compiler Construction Principles and Practice - Kenneth C Louden
First, we give an overview of the operation of a scanner and the structures and concepts involved. Then, we study regular expressions, a standard notation for representing the patterns in strings that form the lexical structure of a programming language. Following that, we study finitestate machines, or finite automata, which represent algorithms for recognizing string patterns given by regular expressions. We also study the process of constructing We then turn to practical methods for writing programs that implement the recognition processes represented by finite automata, and we study a complete implementation of a scanner for the TINY language.
Finally, we study the way the process of producing a scanner program can be automated through the use of a scanner generator, and we repeat the implementation of a scanner for TINY using Lex, vvhich is a standard scanner generator available for use on Unix and other systems. The logical units the scanner generates are called tokens, and forming characters into tokens is much like forming characters into words in an English sentence and deciding which word is meant.
In this it resembles the task of spelling. Tokens are logical entities that are usually defined as an enumerated type. Tokens fall into several categories. Tokens as logical entities must be clearly distinguished from the strings of characters that they represent.
For example, the reserved word token IF must be distinguished from the string of two characters ' if" that it represents. To make this distinction clearer, the string of characters represented by a token is sometimes called its string value or its lexeme. Some tokens have only one lexeme: reserved words have this property. A token may represent potentially infinitely many lexemes, however. Identifiers, for example, are all represented by the single token ID, but they have many different string values representing their individual names.
These names cannot be ignored, since a compiler must keep track of them in a symbol table. Thus, a scanner must also construct the string values of at least some of the tokens. Any value associated to a token is called 5. In a language without enumerated types we would have to define tokens directly as symbolic numeric values.
Thus, in old-style C one sometimes sees the following:. Tokens may also have other attributes. For example, a NOM token may have a string value attribute such as " ," which consists of five numeric characters, but it will also have a numeric value attribute that consists of the actual value computed from its string value. Indeed, the token symbol itself may be viewed as simply another attribute, and the token viewed as the collection of all of its attributes. A scanner needs to compute at least as many attributes of a token as necessary to allow further processing.
For example, the string value of a NOM token needs to be computed, but its numeric value need not be computed immediately, since it is computable from its string value. On the other hand, if its numeric value is computed, then its string value may be discarded. Sometimes the scanner itself may perform the operations necessary to record an attribute in the appropriate place, or it may simply pass on the attribute to a later phase of the cotnpiler.
For example, a scanner could use the string value of an identifier to enter it into the symbol table, or it could pass it along to be entered at a later stage. A more common arrangement is for the scanner to return the token value only and place the other attributes in variables where they can be accessed by other parts of the compiler. Although the task of the scanner is to convert the entire source program into a sequence of tokens, the scanner will rarely do this all at once. Instead, the scanner will operate under the control of the parser, returning the single next token from the input on demand via a function that will have a declaration similar to the C declaration TokenType getToken void ;.
The getToken function declared in this manner will, when called, return the next token from the input, as well as compute additional attributes, such as the string value of the token. The string of input characters is usually not made a parameter to this function, but is kept in a buffer or provided by the system input facilities. As an example of the operation of get Token, consider the following line of C source code, which we used as an example in Chapter 1: a[index].
Suppose that this line of code is stored in an input buffer as follows, with the next input character indicated by the arrow:. A call to getToken will now need to skip the next four blanks, recognize the string "a" consisting of the single character a as the next token, and return the token value ID as the next token, leaving the input buffer as follows:. Thus, a subsequent call to get Token will begin the recognition process again with the left bracket character. We tun1 now to the study of methods for defining and recognizing patterns in strings of characters.
A regular expression r is complete! This set is called the language generated by the regular expression and is written as L r. Here the word language is used only to mean "set of strings" and has at least at this stage no specific relationship to a programming language. This language depends, first, on the character set that is available. Sometimes the set will be more general than the ASCII character set, in which case the set elements are referred to as symbols.
This set of legal symbols is called the alphabet and is usually written as the Greek symbol I sigma. A regular expression r will also contain characters from the alphabet, but such characters have a different meaning: in a regular expression, all symbols indicate patterns. In this chapter, we will distinguish the use of a character as a pattern by writing all patterns in boldface. Thus, a is the character a used as a pattern. Last, a regular expression r may contain characters that have special meanings. Such characters are called metacharacters or metasymbols.
Often, however, it is not possible to require such an exclusion, and a convention must be used to differentiate the two possible uses of a metacharacter. In many situations this is done by using an escape character that "turns off" the special meaning of a metacharacter. Common escape characters are the backslash and quotes. We are now in a position to describe the meaning of regular expressions by stating which languages are generated by each pattern.
We do this in several stages. First, we describe the set of basic regular expressions, which consist of individual symbols. Then, we describe operations that generate new regular expressions from existing ones. This is similar to the way arithmetic expressions are constructed: the basic arithmetic expressions are the numbers, such as 43 and 2. Later we will consider extensions to this minimal set. Basic Regular Expressions These are just the single characters from the alphabet, which match themselves. There are two additional symbols that we will need in special situations.
We need to be able to indicate a match of the empty string, that is, the string that contains no characters at all. We discuss each of these in turn, giving the corresponding set construction for the languages of matched strings. Choice Among Alternatives If r and s are regular expressions, then rl s is a regular expression which matches any string that is matched either by r or by s.
As a second example, the regular expression a I E matches either the single character a or the empty string consisting of no characters. In other wor. We also sometimes write long sequences of choices with dots, as in a Ib I I z, which matches any of the lowercase letters a through z. The use of parentheses as metacharacters in this regular expression will be explained shortly. We can describe the effect of concatenation in tenns of generated languages by defining the concatenation of two sets of strings.
Given two sets of strings S 1 and S2, the concatenated set of strings S1S2 is the set of strings of S1 appended by all the strings of S2. It matches e because e is the concatenation of no strings that match a. Given a set S of strings, let. This is an infinite set union, but each element in it is a finite concatenation of strings from S. S is the concatenation of S n-times. Again, the reason for the parentheses as metacharacters will be explained later.
This regular expression matches any of the following strings: e, a, bb, aa, abb, bba, bbbb, aaa, aabb, and so on. Precedence of Operations and Use of Parentheses The foregoing description neglected the question of the precedence of the choice, concatenation, and repetition operations.
The standard convention is that repetition should have higher precedence, so that the second interpretation is the correct one. When we wish to indicate a different precedence, we must use parentheses to do so. This is the reason we had to write a Ib c to indicate that the choice operation should be given higher precedence than concatenation, for otherwise a Ibe is interpreted as matching either a or be.
Names for Regular Expressions Often, it is helpful as a notational simplification to give a name to a long regular expression, so that we do not have to write the expression itself each time we wish to use it. As an example, if we want to develop a regular expression for a sequence of one or more numeric digits, then we could write. The use of a regular definition is a great convenience, but it does introduce the added complication that the name itself then becomes a metasymbol and a means must be fout1d to distinguish the name from the concatenation of its characters.
In our case, we have made that distinction by using italics for the name. Note that a name cannot be used in its own definition i. An expression of the fonn rs, where rands are regular expressions. Thus, parentheses do not change the language. T'hey are used only to adjust the precedence of the operations. In the remainder of this section, we consider a series of examples designed to elaborate on the definition we have just given.
These are somewhat artificial in that they do not usually appear as token descriptions in a programming language. In Section 2. In the following examples, there generally is an English description of the strings to be matched, and the task is to translate the description into a regular expression. This situation, where a language manual contains descriptions of the tokens, is the most common one facing compiler writers.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to reverse the direction, that is, move from a regular expression to an English description, so we also include a few exercises of this kind. Consider the set of all strings over this alphabet that contain exactly one b. This set is generated by the regular expression.

Haskell has only one J-style verb, that is, only one overloaded operator: the unary minus. This one is different. Curious to see what a Scala program looks like? Here you will find the standard "Hello, world! Three examples: Allocating long-lived objects in the C heap instead of the Haskell heap. Such operations are baked into the compiler at a very low level.
The code examples in the five screenshots on the homepage are some of the first real-world use cases I've seen of "real" Haskell. From investment banks to social networks, everyone is adopting Haskell. I implemented a set data type in Haskell and I wanted to find out if I made correct choices when writing it.
The code was originally posted as De-typechecker: converting from a type to a term on the Haskell mailing list on Tue, 1 Mar PST Get started with Haskell. More code may be found on the wiki. Haskell Programming Tips In this section, we shall look at some Haskell programming tips" Indentation In Haskell the indentation is important. The GHC Commentary - Coding Style Guidelines for the compiler This is a rough description of some of the coding practices and style that we use for Haskell code inside compiler.
R code is designed to be evaluated using an instance of the R interpreter Doctest: Test interactive Haskell examples. Links lead to various Haskell implementation. How I code so fast. Currently, there are six residential halls at Haskell. Haskell reserves the right to verify official tribal enrollment documents with the BIA agency or federally recognized tribe. Readers of this book have found that a facility for Haskell can translate into better F , Scala, or Swift code. The below code is a full solution to a relatively simple, but classic, logic puzzle.
I'm currently running haskell-mode for emacs, with the hs-lint plugin, Haskell support for FlyMake which provides on-the-fly syntax checking from the Haskell compiler , and code autocompletion. We also have specialized tools for searching across it, not only by name, but by type. I'm planning integrating Haskell into C for realtime game.
Almost everything is done with lists, which are primitives in the language. Haskell A simple example shows how concise and articulate Haskell code is:. Haskell uses a system called layout to automatically block its code so that statements within a block must have the same indentation.
Computations on multi-dimensional, regular arrays are expressed in the form of parameterised collective operations, such as maps, reductions, and permutations. Haskell is the perfect cradle for concepts like Folding. The literate Haskell code with explanations and the examples The code was originally posted as Partial signatures on Haskell-Cafe mailing list on Fri, 6 Aug PDT How to make a function strict without changing its body Another application of the trick of adding a clause with an always failing guard Get started with Haskell.
To get a feel for what real world Haskell looks like, here are some examples from various popular Haskell projects. If you really want to sort a list, you would probably use another Learn Haskell tutorials Work in Process We are working hard to create the est content on Haskell tutorials and examples. Types in Haskell, like those in other languages, are constraining summaries of structural values. Haskell has several implementations for multiple platforms. Type classes, which enable type-safe operator overloading, originated in Haskell. Use of Haskell state monad a code smell?
God I hate the term "code smell", but I can't think of anything more accurate. Author Simon Marlow walks you through the process with lots of code examples that you can run, experiment with, and extend. For example:. Go is an open source programming language designed for building simple, fast, and reliable software. The dollar sign might look strange at first, but it is common in Haskell programs. Go by Example is a hands-on introduction to Go using annotated example programs. A reference is available from GHC's site. History Find file. Haskell is based on lambda calculus and uses the Greek letter lambda as its logo.
You will write and test dozens of interesting programs and dive into custom Haskell modules. Scanning 3. Context-Free Grammar and Parsing 4. Top-Down Parsing 5. Bottom-Up Parsing 6. Semantic Analysis 7. Runtime Environments 8. Author's Bio Kenneth C.
