just in-case he wants a preprocessor with much more C like syntax (IMHO
m4 is a bit... weird...), I have put mine up on my server:
my server is not always up, as this is a personally-run server (at my
house, behind an ADSL connection).
was going to slap an MIT style license on it, but I noted I had already
put it under public domain, either way, it is free to use it however.
it does support a number of extensions though from the standard C
preprocessor, such as:
delayed expansion (via "##"/"###"/... directives);
block macros ("#macro name(args) ... #endmacro" IIRC);
in-place substitution ("$(name)");
but, sadly, these features are not really documented.
but, hell, in case it might be helpful, I am putting it up.
