I'd like to now what those are. I don't have any really good books dedicated to compiler design I guess.

I have the O'Reilly lex & yacc book, I have the aforementioned Programming Language Pragmatics which isn't per se a how-to on compiler writing but has lots of suggestions on certain topics within the realm of writing compilers, Writing Compilers and Interpreters by Ronald Mak (with which I am not very impressed although it does teach how to write a non-optimizing recursive descent parser fairly effectively), and a few books which touch on interpretation and compilation (including books on assembly, on the general practices of programming, on embedded programming, on advanced user interfaces, etc.).

Of the group which I have, the Dragon is the best one devoted entirely to the hows and whys of building a whole compiler. Lex&Yacc and Programming Language Pragmatics together make for a good team, though.
