A Dutch colleague introduced me to plasmasturm.org a while ago – an excellent software engineering resource. I hadnt noticed it before* but today I was most tickled by a quote he has on his code page:
A friend of mine in a compiler writing class produced a compiler with one error message ‘you lied to me when you told me this was a program’
* Maybe I did notice it before and didnt get it. Since I first looked at that site I’ve done some work with the RACC, JACC and JavaCC compiler compilers (of the two Java compiler compilers, I prefer JavaCC).
