Haskell re-implementation of cpp

'cpphs' is a simplified Haskell re-implementation of cpp, the C pre-processor, in Haskell. The C pre-processor is widely used in Haskell source code, but a true cpp is not often available on some systems, and the common cpp provided by the gcc 3.x series is changing in ways that are incompatible with Haskell's syntax. This includes problems with, for instance, string gaps, and prime characters in identifiers. This project attempts to provide an alternative to cpp that is more compatible with Haskell and can be distributed with compilers.
