    Hi everybody,Big Smile <img src=" src="/emoticons/emotion-2a.gif">

    i'm trying to build a compiler using MFC application..

    i just wonna to ask wether the copmilers of known languages such c++ or java etc the whole code one time  and store it in a buffer or somthing (i.e in memory ) and then handle it line by line (which reduces I/O operations time and the speed is an aspect when designing  a complier ),or read each line from the hard (which reduces memory usage for such a very big file size especially that dealing with arrays in c++ is static!!), so plz let me know what do u think!? thanks

    If you are going to build a compiler then you will need to do a lot of research on how they work, i would recommend that you read this thread.

    Hope this helps you.
