Alternative C/C++ preprocessor
C/C++ preprocessor defines and expands macros and processes ‘#if’, ‘#include’ and some other directives.
MCPP is an alternative C/C++ preprocessor with the highest conformance. It supports multiple standards K&R, ISO C90, ISO C99, and ISO C++98. MCPP is especially useful for debugging a source program which use complicated macros and also useful for checking portability of a source.
Though mcpp could be built as a replacement of GCC’s resident preprocessor or as a stand-alone program without using library build of mcpp, this package installs a program named ‘mcpp’ which links shared library of libmcpp and behaves independent from GCC.
