I was speaking more about general parser design; the book, referenced
earlier in the same post, is Allen I. Holub's "Compiler Design in C". I
think it's retailing for about $80, and it is available from Amazon. The
book is huge, more the size of a dictionary than a textbook, and
fantastically detailed on several esoteric topics. While I don't own a
copy, I have repeatedly hit a local bookstore to look up one topic or
another in it, and I have yet to have a problem related to
compiler/parser design that I couldn't find addressed there.
