I'm developing a compiler for a language that will be expanded in
future. So I need to make the front-end (the more "language dependent"
part of compiler) very extendable. For example, next versions of the
language will introduces new basic types and new constructs.
I produce, as back-end of the compiler, an assembly code that I will
compile in a virtual machine code.
Someone can suggest me how design the compiler core? I'm developing it
using an OO approach but I have few experience in compiler design.

[The usual advice is to use front end tools like yacc or more likely one
of its more modern descendants to build the front end automatically from
a grammar description. -John]
