The C Preprocessor is an interesting standard. It appears to be derived from the de-facto behaviour of the first preprocessors, and has evolved over the years. Implementation is therefore difficult. JCPP is a complete, compliant, standalone, pure Java implementation of the C preprocessor. It is intended to be of use to people writing C-style compilers in Java using tools like sablecc, antlr, JLex, CUP and so forth. This project has has been used to successfully preprocess much of the source code of the GNU C library. As of version 1.2.5, it can also preprocess the Apple Objective C library.
The latest version is considered the development version, and bug fixes will be applied to it without an update of the version number. The version number is only updated when significant changes are made.
