I have been using cpp for some real ugly hacks and basically
now realize why the man pages for it state that it wasn't intended
for anything but a C pre-processor.
Somehow I learned about the existence of the m4 macro
processor, and this looks more along the lines of what I want,
but I cannot glean a heck of a lot from its man page.
Could any kind soul please send a short example of what
m4 can be made to do, or if there are any simple docs/refs on it,
I would appreciate those, too. Email only, unless this would be
of general interest.
