      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Ordered on Saturday Evening, got on Monday Morning.
    Flipkart delivery is outstanding.

    I think this book is easier if read along with class room tutorial.
    These algorithms are not easy to write in a book. With online lectures or classes, it becomes much easier.

    good for depth but harder for beginner

    the book is good for depth knowledge , i don't think it's relevant for beginner. some chapter i like very much, like garbage collection .runtime environments , and code generation . last chapters are more useful to me then 1st chapters . it gave me good understanding . but lack coding examples and pictorial illustrations which is very important . i think it will be harder for a novice understanding the 'syntax analysis' and 'lexical analysis' . in my opinion to understand it very good r...

    Difficult to understand

    I tried to read this book but it was too difficult to understand this.
    Difficult language.
    Hard to understand.
    Too lengthy chapters.

    It is now time to move to unconventional books.
    " Engineering a Compiler : Cooper/Torczon "
    Above book is a good book for this subject.
