I've been working on exactly this sort of thing, and although the yacc
grammer by itself relies on a few tricks, it provides an interface
class (CParse) that should provide all the info you need to pull out
class info or to even make a C++ Interpreter or compiler.
Check out my homepage (http://www.csh.rit.edu/~shaggy) in the coming
months. There's some basic info on it up there right now, but it will
be about a month before I get the first release available. I'm using
it as the core for all kinds of things, including dynamic extensions
to C++ as well as a C++ interpretive command shell.
