Whatever language you learn, understanding the decisions that went into its design and implementation will help you use it better. This book should help you: Understand obscure features. * operator. ) Just as it simplifies the assimilation of new languages, an understanding of basic concepts makes it easier to understand these features when you look up the details in the manual. Choose among alternative ways to express things, based on a knowledge of implementation costs. In C++, for example, programmers may need to avoid unnecessary temporary variables, and use copy constructors whenever possible, to minimize the cost of initialization.

Since the (final version of a) program is compiled only once, but generally executed many times, the savings can be substantial, particularly if the interpreter is doing unnecessary work in every iteration of a loop. While the conceptual difference between compilation and interpretation is clear, most language implementations include a mixture of both. They typically look like this: Source program Translator Intermediate program Virtual machine Output Input We generally say that a language is “interpreted” when the initial translator is simple.

A traditional programming languages course (track P in Figure 1) might leave out all of scanning and parsing, plus all of Chapter 4. It would also de-emphasize the more implementation-oriented material throughout. 3). Preface xxxi PLP has also been used at some schools for an introductory compiler course (track C in Figure 1). The typical syllabus leaves out most of Part III (Chapters 11 through 14), and de-emphasizes the more design-oriented material throughout. In place of these, it includes all of scanning and parsing, Chapters 15 through 17, and a slightly different mix of other CS sections.
