Compiler Design



Marks: 5-6

What CPU understands is binary language. For humans its very difficult to write direct binary code. Thats why manufacturers have provided a way to write assembly code which assembler will take as input and convert to equivalent binary code.

Its also difficult to write assembly code. Every programmer may not have assembly level understanding like a mechanical engineers. But still they want to write programs in todays era. So we have developed higher level language like C, C++ and Compiler is the tool to convert this higher level language to assemble code. That means each higher level language needs to have its compiler.

For GATE, we are going to learn different phases of compiler like Lexical Analysis, Syntax Analysis, Symantic Analysis, Intermediate code generation, Code optimization and target code generation. Out of these phases, first two phases carries 70-80% Weightage.
