The Computers: Programming: (Compilers Programming )

Section for compilers, and the theory and practice of creating them. This section does not include compilers for specific languages, which are found elsewhere in subcategories for the source languages involved. Systems for generating separate compiler components (lexers-parsers, code generators or transformation tools) or cross-compilers are found in their respective subcategories under -Compilers. Compilers Programming Computers.

A compiler is a computer program (or a set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language (the target language), with the latter often having a binary form known as object code. (wikipedia)
