Hi daydreamer,

C++ macro operations are not popular, all the rest is replaced by the templates. There is one interesting meta add-on over the C preprocessor:

https://github.com/Hirrolot/metalang99
Metalang99 is a functional language aimed at full-blown C99 preprocessor metaprogramming.
It features a wide range of concepts, including algebraic data types, control flow operators, collections, recursion, and auto-currying -- to develop both small and complex metaprograms painlessly.

commctrl.h
Code: [Select]
#define TreeView_GetItemPartRect(hwnd,hitem,prc,partid) do { TVGETITEMPARTRECTINFO info; info.hti = (hitem); info.prc = (prc); info.partID = (partid); (BOOL)SNDMSG((hwnd),TVM_GETITEMPARTRECT,0,(LPARAM)&info); } while (0)
May the source be with you
