Advances and problems in the field of compiler compilers are the subject of the 2nd CCHSC Workshop which took place in Berlin, GDR, in October 1988. The 18 papers which were selected for the workshop are now included in this volume, among them three invited papers. They discuss the requirements, properties and theoretical aspects of compiler compilers as well as tools and metatools for software engineering. The papers cover a wide spectrum in the field of compiler compilers ranging from overviews of existing compiler compilers and engineering of compiler compilers to special problems of attribute evaluation generation and code generation. In connection with compiler compiler projects means of supporting high speed compilation are pointed out. Special attention is given to problems of incremental compilation.
