       cppo - lightweight cpp-like preprocessor for OCaml


       cppo [Options...] files...


       cppo  is  the  equivalent  of  the C preprocessor for OCaml. It permits the definition and
       expansion of simple (in comparison with camlp4) macros and file inclusion.  cppo  supports
       functional  macros, conditionals, boolean and arithmetic expressions, stringification, and
       calling different, external preprocessors. For a precise description of the features,  see


       -D IDENT
              define IDENT

       -U IDENT
              undefine IDENT

       -I DIR add DIR to the search path for included files

       -o FILE
              write output to FILE

       -q     Identify and preserve camlp4 quotations

       -s     Output  line  directives  pointing  to  the  exact  source  location of each token,
              including those coming from the body of macro definitions. This behavior is off  by

       -n     Do  not  output  any  line directive other than those found in the input (overrides

              print version and exit

              Define a custom preprocessor target section starting with:

                     #ext "NAME"

              and ending with:


              NAME must be a lowercase identifier of the form [a-z][A-Za-z0-9_]*

              CMD_TEMPLATE is a command template supporting the following special sequences:

                     %F  file name (unescaped; beware of potential scripting attacks)

                     %B  number of the first line

                     %E  number of the last line

                     %%  a single percent sign

              The filename, the first line number and the last line number are available  to  the
              external  preprocessor  via  the  environment variables CPPO_FILE, CPPO_FIRST_LINE,

              The command is expected to read from stdin and to write to stdout.
