RE: WPP capabilities in gcc

GNU gettext with Emacs source context might do it.  You'd have to invent your own tags, in lieu of of __FILE__, etc.

It seems to me the general problem is that C preprocessor does not give you the full power of C.   One cannot simply define a function to hash the __FILE__ string at compile time.   There's no quasi-quote like in Lisp or Haskell.

SystemTap does not give a solution for this, and is not really intended for this use:

* It's no cross-platform, it's for Linux
* It doesn't allow the developer to write the text he wants
* It doesn't parse the tracing string

The solution I'm talking about is:
* cross platform
* Will allow you to write arbitrary trace string
* Parses the string and the parameters in it (%s, %d) and makes sure they are traced too.
