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.
