    Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic


    Building a compiler can only really be understood by doing it. However, writing a compiler by hand is labour-intensive, time-consuming and error-prone. To automate this process, a compiler-writing system called SLADE, which stands for Student Language Development Environment, has been developed. This book consists of a tutorial on SLADE, comprising 8 lessons, and a reference guide for SLADE . The reference guide provides a detailed description of the Application Programming Interface, the underlying Virtual Machine (including the virtual instruction set), and a code interpreter. An on-line help is provided in SLADE that is closely related to the contents of this book.
