If you want to really stress your program, check Boost.Preprocessor
library.  This is a library of arithmetic operations, data structures,
looping constructs, etc. all implemented entirely in C preprocessor.


The distribution of Boost contains regression tests for preprocessor
library. It's placed in libs/preprocessor/test/. Right now cpphs doesn't
pass any test, because it trips on comments after #.

And now two error reports from me.

1.  #define C D D
    #define B C C
    #define A B B

    should expand to

    D D D D D D D D


    D D C B

2.  #define F(x) #x
    F(abcd efg)

    should expand to

    "abcd efg"


    #abcd efg

Best regards,

.signature: Too many levels of symbolic links
