comment Placing arguments on their own lines
Thanks for that bit about the local variables especially. It's something I've been doing for awhile. I think I'll just write the parameters on individual lines whenever I feel like making variables.

I would refrain from asking questions with multiple parts to them, but I'm having trouble finding the right words to search this on Google. I figured that asking this question on SE would prove beneficial because it would help others like me find what they're looking for easier.

comment Path to learning compiler design
@MichaelT Is there a point to your last comment? Nobody is offering an actual list of steps to take; I'd even say that my own crummy example is the current best answer. It's against SE to select external resources as a best answer, but since nobody else responded with anything better than your suggestion and I don't like to vote up my own (esp. incomplete) answers, I would select yours. Of course I knew O'Reilly was your opinion; I certainly wouldn't think it was fact.

comment Path to learning compiler design
@MichaelT I don't need to know it, but I want to. I can't expect to understand a book about compiler design to the same degree as I might if I already understood the prerequisites. Knowing these means a deeper and faster understanding of the contents of the book, as well as a significantly smaller chance of misinterpretation. Knowing the prerequisites allows me to fit the pieces together and draw parallels to my current knowledge, which is much easier to do when it's done in a linear fashion.

@jozefg I tried it, but didn't want to continue because I feel like I'm missing a lot of things (page 3). I'm using version 1 of the book, since I cannot access version 2 as an ebook right now (and I suspect it's mostly inconsequential). And it's somewhat counter-intuitive to learn compiler design and theory before I learn the framework that makes them up. I think learning for computers should be circuits -> Memory allocation -> CPU/Booting/OS -> Software, but I think that I am missing some prerequisites along the way. That's why I'm asking for them.
