  What is compiler? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
The compiler derives its name from the way it works, looking at the entire piece of source code and collecting and reorganizing the instructions.
In effect, the compiler is the language, because it defines which instructions are acceptable.
Because compilers translate source code into object code, which is unique for each type of computer, many compilers are available for the same language.

A compiler usually generates assembly language first and then translates the assembly language into machine language.
A C/C++ compiler converts C and C++ code into assembly language as shown in this example.
Compiled programs (right) are translated into the machine language of the target computer.

  Compiler Summary
Building a self-hosting compiler is a bootstrapping problem -- the first such compiler for a language must be compiled either by a compiler written in a different language, or (as in Hart and Levin's Lisp compiler) compiled by running the compiler in an interpreter.
Compilers which are capable of producing both native and foreign binary output may be called either a cross compiler or a native compiler depending on a specific use, although it would be more correct to classify them as cross compilers.
The ability to compile in a single pass is often seen as a benefit because it simplifies the job of writing a compiler and one pass compilers are generally faster than multi-pass compilers.

 Compiler-compiler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first Compiler Compiler to use that name was written by Tony Brooker in 1960 and was used to create compilers for the Atlas computer at the University of Manchester, including the Atlas Autocode compiler.
However it was rather different from modern compiler compilers, and today would probably be described as being somewhere between a highly customisable generic compiler and an extensible-syntax language.
Compiler Compilers exist in many flavors, including bottom-up rewrite machine generators (see JBurg) used to tile syntax trees according to a rewrite grammar for code generation, and attribute grammar parser generators (see Antlr that can be used for simultaneous type checking, constant propagation, and more during the parsing stage).

 Language compiler - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Language compiler   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The process of compilation; a program written in a high-level language is translated into a program that can be run without the original source being present.
The compiler translates each high-level instruction into several machine-code instructions – in a process called compilation – and produces a complete independent program that can be run by the computer as often as required, without the original source program being present.
In contrast to using an interpreter, using a compiler adds slightly to the time needed to develop a new program because the machine-code program must be recompiled after each change or correction.

 Compiler definition by The Linux Information Project (LINFO)
The 1990s saw a surge in the introduction of free compilers and compiler development tools, including those developed as part of the GNU project, whose purpose is to create a high performance and completely free operating system.
Compilers can be classified in various ways, including by their input language, their target code (i.e., output language), the platform they run on and whether they are proprietary (i.e., commercial) software or free software.
Compilers are very complex programs, and compiler design is a very complicated task (and an excellent way to deepen ones understanding of computer science).
