Get ‘Build Your Own Programming Language — Second Edition’ (worth $39.99) for FREE


There are many reasons to build a programming language: out of necessity, as a learning exercise, or just for fun.

Whatever your reasons, Build Your Own Programming Language gives you the tools to succeed. You’ll build the frontend of a compiler for your language and generate a lexical analyzer and parser using Lex and YACC tools. Then you’ll explore a series of syntax tree traversals before looking at code generation for a bytecode virtual machine or native code.

In this edition, a new chapter has been added to assist you in comprehending the nuances and distinctions between preprocessors and transpilers. Code examples have been modernized, expanded, and rigorously tested, and all content has undergone thorough refreshing.

You’ll learn to implement code generation techniques using practical examples, including the Unicon Preprocessor and transpiling Jzero code to Unicon. You’ll move to domain-specific language features and learn to create them as built-in operators and functions.

You’ll also cover garbage collection. Dr. Jeffery’s experiences building the Unicon language are used to add context to the concepts, and relevant examples are provided in both Unicon and Java so that you can follow along in your language of choice.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to build and deploy your own domain-specific language.
