I'm looking for a C++ class library which allows me to parse a C-like
language build up an object list with the different grammar rules with
methods to change the objects of the different rules and the possibility
to print out all object thus generating a correct C-program.

An example:

a object statement would consists of either an object labeled_statement or
expression_statement or ...
I could for example do a statement::change_expression_statement(expression).
and after parsing an input file I could do
statement::print() or simply cout << statement

Of course this class library should allow to build up a symbol table and
also methods to manipulate the symbols (changing names and types and all

I don't know if I described clear enough what I'm looking for but if
anyone has comments on this or has something like this I would appreciate
every pointer to it.

it's not very fancy. -John]
