It seems that Dennis Ritchie wrote a paper 'A Tour through the Unix C<br>
Compiler' which is quite useful in understanding the compiler. I have<br>
converted the doc to Markdown format as well which makes it easier to<br>
read.</blockquote><div><br></div></span><div><a href="https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/belllabs-microsite-plan9/7thEdMan/bswv7.html" target="_blank">https://s3-us-west-2.<wbr>amazonaws.com/belllabs-<wbr>microsite-plan9/7thEdMan/<wbr>bswv7.html</a></div><div><br></div><div style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif">​You might try downloading the PDF or PS versions of the V7 documents from amazon.   It seems like a lot less work work and will be a lot easier to read.   Also Gnu groff runs on pretty much everything these days, so going from the V7 troff sources yourself is not difficult; in fact its pretty smart.   Its still the best 'pure document compiler' out there.  And it means you can add your additions/ corrections / notes to what Dennis did right inline.</div><div style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif">​</div></div></div></div><div hspace="streak-pt-mark" style="max-height:1px"><img alt="" style="width: 0px; max-height: 0px; overflow: hidden;" src="https://mailfoogae.appspot.com/t?sender=aY2xlbWNAY2NjLmNvbQ%3D%3D&type=zerocontent&guid=05a8f1ff-9b3c-469e-bccb-3ad9efe71d98"><font size="1" color="#ffffff">ᐧ</font></div>
