I'm new to the (wonderful) world of compilers.

1. If I could learn / master ONLY ONE of these two tools, which one
should I?
2. If I could learn / master BOTH, which one should I pick first?

For theory / concepts... I'm intending to refer to the 1st edition of
the Dragon Book, even though the 2nd, completely rewritten edition is
now available. This is because I don't have a need to write a very
sophisticated compiler, rather only a simple/crude one for our in-
house development needs. I will be more than happy as long as I can
transform language A to language B. Thus...

3. ...for my simple compiler writing needs, can I confidently rely on
just one book: the Dragon Book 1st edition?
