    Agreed, but what about the README? It would seem that there is an inference of compatiblity with C macros, and a familiarity with them on the users part. Then again, it's not as if I wrote it ;-) And of course, there's always the source.

    perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"

      The README is three lines long (aside from build instructions) and doesn't mention C macros at all. It comes with no examples and no tests. It is, for all intents and purpose aside from the author's own use, worthless.


        Calling something worthless because you are unwilling/unable to take a peak under the hood to accomdate the author's laziness/lack of foresight is tantamount to calling a box of toothpicks without directions useless.

        perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"
