I've had good results using Visual Parse++ from Sandstone
Technologies. Seems like they usually have an ad in Software
Development (& maybe Dr. Dobbs) I can look up the contact info if you
need. Another plus is you can test out your grammar by parsing an
input file in the visual environment used to write and compile the
grammar. It produces a visual Parse Tree of the result. This way you
have done much of the verification of the grammar before you actually
start your coding.
