The following works just fine for me:

  @CP { @Include { myprog.cpp } }

Attn: FAQ compiler!  This is a variation of common mistake.

    macro @PP { //@ParaGap @ParaIndent @Wide &{0i} }

So what you are asking for is:

    { @ParaIndent @Wide {} } &0i @CP {...}

You concatenate horizontally a @ParaIndent wide blank object and the
whole formatted source of your program.

Read expert's guide for deatails (pp25-27, section 2.7 "Galleys and
targets").  The problem is that since the '&' operator is used (not
'|') the vertical concatenations inside the @CP will not be considered
as potential split points.  If '|' is used (e.g. @ID @CP {...}), Lout
will find the split points (see last paragraph on p26).

Use '//' vertical concatenation operator.  Or use @DP or @LP both of
which expands to '//'.  Or put your @CP into a display.

Lout concatenates rectangular objects.  So when something doesn't work
as expected think which objects are concatenated and how.

Hope it helps.
