I'm curious about how macros and include files are normally processed.
The reason I'm asking about include files is because Bob Sheff
raised a point in a previous post about how saving the file pointer
and position would take up a lot of memory.
[The file pointer and position take an insignficant amount of memory,
but in packages like Unix standard I/O, each open file also allocates
an open file structure from a table that's not very big and a set of
I/O buffers. -John]
