GNU M4

https://www.gnu.org/software/m4/
Macro processor

M4 is an implementation of the M4 macro language, which features some extensions over other implementations, some of which are required by GNU Autoconf. It is used as a macro processor, which means it processes text, expanding macros as it encounters them. It also has some built-in functions, for example to run shell commands or to do arithmetic.
