Take a look at

From this page you may download the system and the documentation.
The page also provides some real-world applications from
industry and research.

From the cover of the Gentle book:
Gentle is a high level compiler construction system that is widely used in
industry and academia. Various commercial products have been constructed
with Gentle.

The Gentle compiler description language covers the full spectrum of
compiler construction. It supports language recognition, definition of
abstract syntax trees, construction of tree walkers based on pattern
matching, smart traversal, simple unparsing for source-to-source
translation, and optimal code selection for microprocessors.
Gentle provides a uniform framework for all of these tasks.
