Hi Tom,

Here is an ealy draft for an article I wrote for `Linux User & Developer'
magazine about 5 years ago (shame it starts with "on the cusp of the
release of GNU M4 2.0" *blush*).  I can't lay my hands on the completed
version of the article right now, but you might find this draft
interesting nonetheless, since it deals with M4 as a C preprocessor.

If you try to copy any of the code, beware that the file is in Emacs
muse-mode syntax; so [ characters had to be escaped with a leading `
to prevent them from being treated as links, and fixed width font
words are surrounded by = characters, as well as a smattering of HTML
entities (&amp; for &) and tags (<example>).
