Someone did mention recently on the list that he was writing a C
preprocessor. I wonder what came of that...
A C preprocessor in Lua (with most of the useful bits) comes up to
around a 15-20KB stripped binary chunk I think. The trouble with
writing a C preprocessor is getting it to run all the examples at
the end of section 6.10.3 in the C std doc.
Agree that a cut-down preprocessor might be a good direction to
go, depending on your requirements. tolua/tolua++ has something
like that too.
