I have wondered about preprocessors before. Consider the evolution
from PL/I to C to Java as far as preprocessors go. If you don't know
PL/I its preprocessor even has preprocessor procedures, loops, compile
time arithmetic, etc.
You probably know what C has, and Java has almost nothing.
My guess is that there aren't any books since 1974.
