Hi all -

Can anyone tell me where to find information about macro pre-processors
available for free or in the `public domain'? Maybe this is the wrong
group to ask? (Indeed I have been following it for some months hoping that
it would prove the right group, but it don't look like it is :( . But any
suggestions would be hugely appreciated.)

I am hoping to find a macro processor language suitable for use in a text
processing environment. Neither m4 nor cpp will do the job. Are there
others out there?

Many thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction.

Best wishes to all,

Richard Davies
