University of Pennsylvania Department of Computer and Information Science Technical Report No. MS-CIS-93-89.


We present a complete description of a project for a compiler that translates a subset of the C programming language to SPARC assembler language. The project is suitable for a one semester undergraduate course on compilers and interpreters based on the text of Aho, Sethi, and Ullman, and has been used successfully in that context at the University of Pennsylvania. Output that facilitate scoring, and checkpoints for monitoring the students' progress are integral to the project description.
