This is an obsolete project. Project has been moved from antpp.sourceforge.net

ANTPP

This project adds preprocessing capability to java programs. Antpp does not implement a preprocessor, it calls the well-known cpp (C PreProcessor). Antpp is a collection of ant tasks.

The program has no GUI, but I created a simple screenshot: (Click on the image to enlarge it).

Usage

Copy antpp-bin.jar into the lib directory of Ant.

It is necessary to define the tasks at the beginning of the build.xml file:

Task definitions
<taskdef name="cpp" classname="hu.jataka.antpp.Cpp"/>

<taskdef name="cppdel" classname="hu.jataka.antpp.CppDel"/>

Cpp

Calls the preprocessor for a specified file, or for all the *.x* files in a directory. It ignores files with the following patterns: *~, .#*, *.xml

It replaces the '.x' part of the name with '.' For example: Main.xjava -> Main.java

It creates read-only files (if the extension is not jad), because modifying the generated files by hand is not a good idea.

Parameters

Parameters of cpp task
file Name of the file to be preprocessed.
dir Name of the directory, to search for files to be preprocessed.
macros List of macros to be passed to cpp. <macro> tags can also be used.

Example

cpp example
<target name="preprocess" depends="init">

<cpp dir="src" macros='DEBUG,VER=100' />

</target>

Or:

cpp example (using <macro> tags)
<target name="preprocess" depends="init">

<cpp dir="src">

<macro name="DEBUG" />

<macro name="VER" value="100" />

</cpp>

</target>

CppDel

Deletes the generated files (useful as a part of the clean process).

Parameters

Parameters of cppdel task
dir Directory to search for generated files.

Example

cppdel example
<target name="clean">

<cppdel dir="src" />

</target>
