For prototyping a new language i usually resort to the GOLD Parser
Builder (very nice IDE):
http://www.devincook.com/goldparser/
You can also emit a Yacc grammar from the GOLD grammar.


For Yacc/Lex there exist some free/open-source tools, but nothing as
complete as an IDE.
Such a tool is yaccviso and there probably exist a few more.
