Compilers translate programs written by humans in high-level languages to programs which can be executed by machines. They are very important, heavily used and at the same time one of the most complex pieces of software. A whole range of techniques and ideas from Automata Theory, Algorithm Design, Computer Organization and Architecture, etc. are cleverly applied to create a compiler. In this course, students will learn in depth the various phases involved in the compilation process. The course will also involve implementing an actual compiler for a subset of the Java language.
Goal of the course: At the end of the course, students will have a fair understanding of some standard passes in a general purpose compiler. Students will have hands on experience on implementing a compiler for a subset of Java.
