To answer the specific request, Yacc++(r) and the Language Ojbects
Library incorporates a solution to that specific problem. The is a
"-microsoft_precompiled_header filename" option (or -mph filename for
short), which prefixes the generated files with a #include "filename"
(where filename defaults to stdafx.h for convenience to Visual C++

In my opinion (but I am certainly biased on this part, being one of
the developers) it also answers part 2 since it has regular
expressions, grammar inheritance, a complete object oriented model,
. . . (and looks pretty close to normal yacc to ease the learning
curve). It is however a commercial product and not shareware or
public domain, if that is germane to your decision.
