GPP is a general-purpose preprocessor with customizable syntax, suitable for a wide range of preprocessing tasks. Its independence from any programming language makes it much more versatile than cpp, while its syntax is lighter and more flexible than that of m4. The syntax is fully customizable, which makes it possible to process text files, HTML, or source code equally efficiently in a variety of languages.

Release Notes: GPP now supports CPP-style #error and #warning macros.
Release Notes: The arithmetic evaluation macro (#eval) now supports POSIX-style wildcard matching (i.e., shell globbing). There is now an #elif macro to help avoid deeply-nested conditionals. Finally, a long-standing bug has been fixed where GPP would be off by one when reporting line numbers in its error messages or with the #line meta- macro.
