"jscpp" is an ANSI C preprocessor and language parser that can analyze and instrument C code. Currently, its most prominent application is to add tracing to existing C programs simply by recompiling and linking it with the "jscc" compiler frontend. The standard tracing shows when a function is entered or left along with the parameters passed or return values. It is also possible to trace each source line and watch read/write access to simple variables. Tracing is achieved by instrumenting the source code before calling the system compiler. The program is modular and can be easily extended to other kinds of source code modifications.

Release Notes: This release adds a new trace mode, "fctwrap", to generate wrappers for each function called. This allows you to see how, for example, standard library functions are called, but is less suitable to instrument code permanently.
