Phases of a Compiler

A compiler is a computer program that translate text written in a computer language into another.

The compiler has a number of phases and symbol table manager and an error handler.

The Phases of the compiler are:

1. Input source program
2. Lexical analyzer
3. Syntax Analyzer
4. Semantic Analyzer
5. Intermediate code generator
6. Code Optimizer
7. Code Generator
8. Target Program

Symbol Table System - An essential function of a compiler is to record the identifiers used in the source program and collect information about various attributes of each identifier.

Error Detection - each phase can encounter errors. After detecting an errors, a phase must somehow deal with that errors, so that compilation can proceed, allowing further errors in the source program to be detected.

Our team is compose of 4th year computer science students. Namely, Andrei G. Macabale, Earl V. Diez, and Algen Rejie L. Dela Cruz. The purpose of this blog is to discuss topics about compilers, its design and principles.
