comment Does having so many macros (#define) increase compilation time due to prolonged pre-processing?
@Ixrec, in a way I am comparing "more macros" with "less macros". For example, imagine in "main.h", I #define 100 macros. Now those macros are not #undefd. This file is included by all the other source files. Now this means, that each macro word has to be searched in whole source code for replacement. This can be efficient, but at least 100 such searches have to happen. Suppose, I could manage to reduce these 100 to 50, then this searches may become half. What I want to know that, does it cause any significant save in preprocessing time or just marginal?

@AndresF., your linked question was asked 3 years after this question. Now decide which is duplicate. Interesting that the accepted answers of both are different.

comment How to spread awareness for generic programming among team members?
@TheMuffinMan, you are right. I left that workplace and now I have my own company. Here I have complete control over the coding!
