I suggest you try COCO/R. See Pat Terry's web site for details:
http://cs.ru.ac.za/homes/cspt/cocor.htm . I have used it several
times and it is a real comfortable, straight-foreward EBNF recursive
descent attributed grammar system originally coming from Niklaus
Wirth's shop. COCO/R comes with complete source and is implemented
and produces a number of languages including C++.
While you are there, Pat has his complete compiler book ready to
download on his site. It is excellent.
