NAME
       shortc - generate short preprocessor definitions for long C identifiers

SYNOPSIS
       shortc [ -symlen ] [ -p ] [ -s ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       Shortc  searches  for instances of long identifiers in the specified files.  In its normal
       mode of operation shortc generates a list of preprocessor definitions that are  unique  in
       their first seven characters.

       The  shortc output is then included into each file (or a common header file) which is pro-
       cessed using a flexnames version of cpp.

       If no files are given shortc reads from the standard input.

       The symlen argument may be used to change the default long identifier  length  from  seven
       characters.

       The  -s	option generates a sed script instead of preprocessor definitions.  The -p option
       causes shortc to parse preprocessor lines.  These options are most  useful  together  when
       flexnames support is not available from cpp.

BUGS
       When  using  cpp,  preprocessor	symbols  must be weeded out by hand.  Otherwise they will
       cause (innocuous) redefinition messages.

       The -p option will incorrectly parse include file names which must be removed by hand from
       the output.
