How do you know that '...when preprocessing different files. Usually they

IIUC in this case you will even have to switch off Waves #pragma once
support and the corresponding heuristics because otherwise it won't even
open a header file for the second time.

Anyway, it would be really helpful to know, what you're going to do with
Wave and how. All I've got so far is that you somehow want to analyze
include file dependencies. Sorry if I've missed this, but is this project
going to build an extention to the current bcp tool?
