This is really not that different from preprocessing in the
normal definition of the term, I think. The C standard
preprocessor provides certain capability useful to the C
programmer (and saolc lets you run code through cpp before
execution, if you want). It's interesting to think about
the kinds of features and syntactic sugar you might want
to provide the SAOL programm through an "spp" tool.
Simple macros, syntax for multidimensional arrays, and
the kinds of global variable manipulations I was talking
about in my previous post come to mind.
