Writing Interpreters, Compilers and Translators in Perlby Moron (Curate)
|on May 24, 2007 at 09:10 UTC||Need Help??|
Moron has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am currently in the planning stage of writing a 60 min. tutorial for YAPC Europe with the above title. The contents list I have planned so far is:
- Introduction: Mapping the technical territory
- Industrial and Commercial application of interpreters, translators and compilers written in Perl.
- The Starting Point: Grammar.
- Relevant Perl code design strategy
- Lexical analyser and Thrower - generic opportunities in Perl and comparison with C-implementation.
- Interpreters, design impact for some high volume throughput applications.
- Compiler and translator parser; parser tree construction and traversal in Perl.
- Code generation for translators implemented in Perl.
- Compiler code generation with Perl
- Porting with virtual and real machines.
- Pre-testing considerations
- CPAN resources, limitations for commercial and industrial application.
- other resources and limitations
I'd be grateful of any feedback, things you'd like to hear about under this topic, suggestions about the topic or subtopics, length, anecdotes from experience, offers to review the draft etc., or perhaps Perl 6 considerations I might want to address early etc. or any other comments that might help me assure the quality and usefulness of this tutorial.
Thanks in advance, sincerely, the M. __________________________________________________________________________________
