I don't really understand why people (mainly on the internet) take issue with people "stealing" topics. You don't own the copyright on covering something owned by someone else. I understand taking someone's writings/script as your own but if you do your own research it's very much valuable as new eyes and/or ears engage with the topic, which can further the collective knowledge on it.

Datatype99 extends #C99 and #Cpp by adding typed unions. These can be matched on, performing different actions when the union is of a certain type. Datatype99 is implemented entirely with the preprocessor using #Metalang99, meaning everything is done compile-time, making code that uses Datatype99 just as fast as code that doesn't.

Metalang99 is a set of macros for #C99 and #Cpp that greatly extends the preprocessor's ability. Metalang99 can assert, handle lists of values, run recursive macros, create overloaded macros, and much more. Metalang99 is processed entirely at compile time, requiring no special considerations at runtime.
