Abstract

The previous chapters have provided us with an annotated syntax tree, either explicitly available as a data structure in memory in a broad compiler or implicitly available during parsing in a narrow compiler. This annotated syntax tree still bears very much the traces of the source language and the programming paradigm it belongs to: higher-level constructs like for-loops, method calls, list comprehensions, logic variables, and parallel select statements are all still directly represented by nodes and subtrees. Yet we have seen that the methods used to obtain the annotated syntax tree are largely language- and paradigm-independent.
