Substitution of identifiers

A list of identifiers can be edited by which the preprocessor unifies the notations of identifiers. In addition there is a second substitution table for the translator.

While the preprocessor cannot distinguish identifiers, which are keywords from other identifiers, the translator does. Only the latter are substituted by the translator, i.e. the names for variables, functions etc. Therefore, the translator can substitute such names, which are keywords in C++. Without this substitution, there would be errors in the translated code. E.g.

double float; -> double float_value;

The identifier is already recognized by the translator before the substitution takes place. Therefore it can be substituted by something completely different, without affecting the translation process. E.g.

StringOfChar -> AnsiString::StringOfChar
