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".

Use preprocessFileLineNumbers instead as it provides more context information on error.
