Importing Legacy C code into mbeddr

Our colleague Federico Tomassetti has spent the last few months working on a facility that can import existing textual C sources into mbeddr. The challenge, of course, is to handle the preprocessor correctly. Federico has done various studies of how the preprocessor is used (see, for example, this paper). Based on these studies he has made significant progress with a preprocessor-aware importer. Today, Federico has recorded a screencast that shows the approach and the current status. The video is embedded below. For details you might also want to take a look at a related blog post.
