Is There Any Freeware, Or Cheaper Shareware, Similar to Visual Parse++ ?

1. Looking for a Parser (not parser generator)


I am looking for a tool that reads a rule file and uses this to
process an input file to an output file. I dont want to have a
generator that produces C code, because the syntax (rules) may change
and the person who is changing the rules does not have a C compiler.

What kind of software is that? I am new to this and I dont think that
lex or yacc can do the trick.

To be more specific: We have text documents that should be converted
to HTML. Specific rules apply that shall do formating to the HTML
document.  (Automatic url to HREF, e.t.c)

thanks for you help
