NAME
       Filter::cpp - cpp source filter

SYNOPSIS
	   use Filter::cpp ;

DESCRIPTION
       This source filter pipes the current source file through the C pre-processor (cpp) if it
       is available.

       As with all source filters its scope is limited to the current source file only. Every
       file you want to be processed by the filter must have a

	   use Filter::cpp ;

       near the top.

       Here is an example script which uses the filter:

	   use Filter::cpp ;

	   #define FRED 1
	   $a = 2 + FRED ;
	   print "a = $a\n" ;
	   #ifdef FRED
	   print "Hello FRED\n" ;
	   #else
	   print "Where is FRED\n" ;
	   #endif

       And here is what it will output:

	   a = 3
	   Hello FRED

       This example below, provided by Michael G Schwern, shows a clever way to get Perl to use a
       C pre-processor macro when the Filter::cpp module is available, or to use a Perl sub when
       it is not.

	   # use Filter::cpp if we can.
	   BEGIN { eval 'use Filter::cpp' }

	   sub PRINT {
	       my($string) = shift;

	   #define PRINT($string) \
	       (print $string."\n")
	   }

	   PRINT("Mu");

       Look at Michael's Tie::VecArray module for a practical use.
