Consider using Tcl. If speed of execution isn't a prime concern then you
could add your application specific routines to a Tcl interpreter and have
Tcl supply all the variables, arrays, hash tables, flow constructs, etc.

You wouldn't need lex or yacc but you'd have to put up with Tcl constructs
instead of whatever you'd prefer.
