I assume the C preprocessor is insufficient?
Some wild things have been done with the preprocessor, while
it is quite weak as far as macro processors are concerned,
it does have the ability to process things that look like
regular functions. Maybe an example of what you want to
do would clear things up.
(For and example of some language extensions using the
C preprocessor, see "RatC" at http://webster.cs.ucr.edu).
