If you're heading down that path, IMHO this book is absolutely essential
reading (despite the title, it's really about Scheme [mostly]):

	"Lisp in Small Pieces", by Christian Queinnec
	[Originally in French as "Les Langages Lisp".]

He goes into extensive detail in presenting various options for
representing environments & lexical variables, code (at various
levels of interpretation and compilation), closures, stacks,etc.
See the first URL for the code from the book. He's also extended
his code generators to target Java in addition to C:


(I know, it's not C++, but it may give you some ideas.)
