Sample text

Lines that do not contain preprocessor commands are called lines of source program text. The preprocessor commands are shown in Table 3-1. The preprocessor typically removes all preprocessor command lines from the source file and makes additional transformations on the source file as directed by the commands, such as expanding macro calls that occur within the source program text. The resulting preprocessed source text must then be a valid C program. The syntax of preprocessor commands is completely independent of (although in some ways similar to) the syntax of the rest of the C language.

Older implementations may behave differently. The remainder of the line following the command name may contain arguments for the command if appropriate. If a preprocessor command takes no arguments, then the Sec. 2 Preprocessor Lexical Conventions 45 remainder of the command line should be empty except perhaps for whites pace characters or comments. Many pre-ISO compilers silently ignore all characters following the expected arguments (if any); this can lead to portability problems. The arguments to preprocessor commands are generally subject to macro replacement.

5 IDENTIFIERS An identifier. or name, is a sequence of Latin capital and small letters, digits, and the underscore or LOW LINE character. An identifier must not begin with a digit, and it must not have the same spelling as a keyword. 9) and other implementation-defined multi byte characters. Universal characters must not be used to place a digit at the beginning of an identifier and are further restricted to be "letter-like" characters and not punctuators. An exact list is provided in the C99 standard (ISOIlEC 9899: 1999, Annex D) and in ISOIIEC TR 10176-1998.
