A program invoked by various compilers to process code
before compilation. For example, the C preprocessor, cpp,
handles textual macro substitution, conditionalcompilation and inclusion of other files. A preprocessor may
be used to transform a program into a simpler language, e.g. to
transform C++ into C.
