Create a Language Compiler for the .NET Framework Using C#

Compiler hackers are celebrities in the world of computer science. I've seen Anders Hejlsberg deliver a presentation at the Professional Developers Conference and then walk off stage to a herd of men and women asking him to sign books and pose for photographs. There's a certain intellectual mystique about individuals who dedicate their time to learning and understanding the ins and outs of lambda expressions, type systems, and assembly languages. Now, you too can share some of this glory by writing your own compiler for the Microsoft® .NET Framework.

I just foolishly got caught in a You-Tube discussion on Java vs C performance. Foolish because You-Tube comments are a lousy way to present anything and because it's hard to keep the level of discourse scholarly. And foolish especially for me because I've had this discussion so many times and it always comes out the same way... so here's my attempt at distilling my arguments into something I can point people the *next* time I get caught in this silly discussion. Is Java faster than C/C++? The short answer is: it depends. Writing Your Own Toy Compiler Using Flex, Bison and LLVM
"If you follow this article, you should end up with a language that can define functions, call functions, define variables, assign data to variables and perform basic math operations. It will support two basic types, doubles and integers. Some of the functionality is unimplemented, so you can have the satisfaction of actually implementing some of this stuff yourself and get the hang of writing a compiler with a little help."

Android but not Paranoid: Dynamically generating and executing x86 code
<GeDaMo> Use mmap rather than malloc if you want memory with nx disabled:
Computer programs can generate machine code in memory and then execute it. This is the case with Sun's Java Hotspot VM, which dynamically compiles Java bytecode to native code to increase the VM's performance. Several exploits are based on buffer overflows to remotely inject machine code into memory and then jumping into it. Google released it's Chrome web browser featuring the V8 Javascript Engine, which greatly improved Javascript's performance by compiling Javascript to native code.
7 lines of code, 3 minutes: Implement a programming language
Implementing a programming language is an experience no programmer should go without; the process fosters a deep understanding of computation, and beside that, it's fun!
