Bmp (for babel universal macro processor) is a powerful general purpose macro processor that can be used in combination with many languages, e.g. Pascal or C. Projects comprising many different languages, can this way share a single mechanism to adjust parameters across all their code base. Developers with C background will be reminded of the functionality of cpp or m4, and those fluent in UNIX will also see similarities to sed.
bmp was developed as a part of the ZTEX EZ-USB SDK and is used to assemble the firmware for EZ-USB micro controllers. It is not associated in any way with D. Knuth's typesetting system. When run as a standalone application, it is as versatile as to serve as a parser or to perform some non-trivial text replacements.
