Can anybody recommend a yacc tool?

I am currently using a 5 year old version of MKS yacc. So far, I am
quite satified, however there are some restrictions:
    - 16 bit, using extended memory
    - it does not support long file names

running under NT
long file names
definition of parser stack types (%type instruction)
good support of error recovery and error reporting
multiple actions per production
selection preference for resolving conflicts
support for debugging and for detecting+correcting shift / reduce
