    What is Compiler? What is Compiler? Presentation Transcript

    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • A compiler is a program that reads a program written in one language –– the source language –– and translates it into an equivalent program in another language –– the target language
    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • As an important part of this translation process, the compiler reports to its user the presence of errors in the source program.
    • 1.1 Compilers:
    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • At first glance, the variety of compilers may appear overwhelming.
      • There are thousands of source languages, ranging from traditional programming languages such as FORTRAN and Pascal to specialized languages.
    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • Target languages are equally as varied;
      • A target language may be another programming language, or the machine language of any computer.
    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • Compilers are sometimes classified as:
        • single-pass
        • multi-pass
        • load-and-go
        • Debugging
        • optimizing
    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • The basic tasks that any compiler must perform are essentially the same.
      • By understanding these tasks, we can construct compilers for a wide variety of source languages and target machines using the same basic techniques.
    • 1.1 Compilers:
      • Throughout the 1950’s, compilers were considered notoriously difficult programs to write.
      • The first FORTRAN compiler, for example, took 18 staff-years to implement.
