I would strongly suggest having a look at ANTLR (used to be PCCTS).
(You can find links to ANTLR and other bits in the Library at
Kanga.Nu) At one time there was a fair bit of discussion here on
PCCTS with Jeff Kesselman from the Ten Network.  Flex and Bison are
good tools, its just that there are better ones available.  ANTLR is
not the only other alternative

Frankly, just buy the O'Reilly book.  Now.  It will save you untold
pain.  You may also like to read the Crenshaw compiler tutorial at: 

  ftp://ftp.kanga.nu/pub/Devel/Docs/Crenshaw.Compiler.Tutorial.zip

It was posted here a while ago by Jon Lambert if you wish to read it
that way.
