2 Using the script preprocessor

The MBFL script preprocessor is a command line program named; it is itself a Bash script that makes use of the MBFL library. It can remove comments, blank lines, blank characters at the beginning of lines, and it can expand macros.

The macro preprocessing is done with the GNU m4 program, using a library of macros called preprocessor.m4 which is installed on the system with the MBFL package.

The use of the preprocessor is fully optional: every feature of the MBFL library can be used without the preprocessor.
