The goal The goal of this course is to introduce students to the basic concepts of the theory of formal languages​​, the basic techniques of constructing language processors, compilers and interpreters, and training students to use the standard tools for the compiler construction.
The outcome It is expected that the student be able to: Demonstrate understanding, critical analysis and application of existing theories, models and techniques in the field of construction of software translators. To be able to formally describe the language syntax and to be able to use standard tools to build simple language processors and translators.
