You need to offer a reasonable amount of points for a question like this.

This is at least 20,000 points, possibly more.

There are books written on the subject. It would make mroe sense for you to read a book already written, rather than ask us to write you one.  Then if you have questions on what you've read, ask them here.

There is loads of stuff on the web about Compiler Design, much of it academic.  Compiler's are staple subject matter of many computing courses.  Type 'Compiler Design' into a search engine and you will find many examples.

A reasonable way to get started is to look at tools like Lex and Yacc (or the GNU equivalents, Flex & Bison).  These are tools designed to help you to write compilers.

Well, they are designed to heop you parse source code.  That is one of many difficult things that a compiler must do.

GCC is an open source compiler collection, and there are manuals online, which include info about how it does what it does.  It is also a very good compiler.  Although not as good a choice as reading a book on compilers from the point of view of understanding the design, you can learn a lot from this site.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that GCC is implemented in C, not C++; but it might be useful.

To grasp compiler design (and see that it is in fact not so difficult as it seems) the following tutorial helped me a lot: www.iecc.com/compilers/crenshaw/

Also, get the "dragon book" (compilers principles, practise and tools by Ado, and a bunch of other authors). It will give you a great deal of insight.

You can try to obtain the source code to jikes from ibm.
