Design and Evolution of C++ by Bjarne Stroustrup.

>From the end of chapter 18 "The C Preprocessor " ( last Para ) :

"I'd like to see Cpp abolished. However, the only realistic and
responsible way of doing that is first to make it redundant, then
encourage people to use the better alternatives, and <em> then </em> -
years later - banish Cpp into the program development with the other
extra-linguistic tools where it belongs."
