Yes indeed! It already exists. Refer to the Project Oberon book which you
can download from the Project Oberon site:


Look for the three files identified as 'Book Chapters...'.

Chapter 12 describes the real world Oberon-07 compiler. Chapters 16 and 17
are also relevant. You should read these after you have completed reading
the Compiler Construction book.

I would have thought Andreas would be the most appropriate person to
document his techniques?
