Emily, do you mean generating 10,000 specializations? The PP library can't go
that high, and, even if it could, it would take _literally_ *forever*. It would
also easily pass the maximum macro depth of every preprocessor in existance. :(
However, the PP library can generate up to (currently) 100 specializations and
do it quickly.
Either way, 10,000 element containers is going *way* beyond real world
practicality. Compilers are ill-suited for that scale of computation. An
external tool would be far better and more practical.
