Recommended Posts

The first place you need to start is with a compiler.  I'm not sure why you want to do this, but that's where you need to start.

Ya, make sure to read on types of programming langauges (procedural, functional, object-oriented, etc), BNF or Extended Backus-Naur Form (EBNF) notation, grammar tree, ambigious grammar/operator precedence, parsing, syntax, semantic, lexical analysis, code optimization, linking/loading, etc, if you planned to compiled language.  :P

PHP was written in C I believe and its syntax are borrowed from languages like Java, C, and C++.

Get & read [url=http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~uno/taocp.html]"The Art of Computer Programming, volume 1"[/url] by Donald Knuth.

These books, although first written in the late 1960's/early 1970's are still considered to be one of the cornerstones of Computer Science.
