Description

Description:
Reads and processes the content of the specified file. Preprocessor is C-like, supports comments using // or /* and */ and macros defined with #define.
Due to the hard-drive access this command executes (and the lack of caching) this command should not be used in time-critical script loops.

Syntax

Syntax:
String = preprocessFile fileName
Parameters:
fileName: String
Return Value:
String

Examples

Example 1:
_content=preprocessFile "myFunction.sqf"

File path is always relative to mission directory. If script dir\a.sqf includes dir\b.sqf, use "dir\b.sqf" and not "b.sqf".
