Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A program invoked by various compilers to process code before compilation. For example, the c preprocessor, cpp, handles textual macro substitution, conditional compilation and inclusion of other files. A preprocessor may be used to transform a program into a simpler language, e.g. to transform c++ into c.
