For my purposes, it might help if you could give a little more detail
on what you intend to do with this preprocessor. Are you trying to
embed a different language in the C source code (sort of like the old
Ingres embedded SQL preprocessor)?

If that's the case, any existing preprocessor examples may not give
you what you need.

You may want to investigate using lex and yacc to build
special-purpose scanners and parsers. It may be easier to create from
scratch than to try and retrofit an existing product.
