Preprocessor, Maco-Processors


In this research paper we discuss those macro-processors that do not dependent on (tied to, or integrated with) any particular programming language or piece of software, but can be used with a variety of different languages. These are the general purpose macro-processors. The different factors considered while designing a general purpose macro-processors are: comments, grouping of statements, tokens and syntax used for macro definitions. A common case of preprocessing is the processing, performed on the code before the next step of compilation. In that sense, Lexical level of preprocessors is the lowest level of preprocessors in so far as they only require Lexical analysis.
