C | Macro & Preprocessor | Question 14
  • Last Updated : 03 Feb, 2013

What is the output of following program?

#include <stdio.h>
#define macro(n, a, i, m) m##a##i##n
#define MAIN macro(n, a, i, m)
int MAIN()
    return 0;

(A) Compiler Error
(B) GeeksQuiz
(D) main

Answer: (B)

Explanation: The program has a preprocessor that replaces “MAIN” with “macro(n, a, i, m)”. The line “macro(n, a, i, m)” is again replaced by main. The key thing to note is token pasting operator ## which concatenates parameters to macro.
