While I appreciate people pointing out PLAI, it's a really bad fit for
what the OP wanted, becuase he wants to focus on front-end matters,
all of which are dismissed with a wave of the hand in a few pages of

Given that modern compilers texts de-emphasize front-ends, Todd may be
best off referring to the Dragon Book (Aho, Sethi, Ullman) -- though
in almost all other regards I would ask you to refer to something else
-- because it probably has the most information on parsing matters.
