Sunifdef is a command line tool for simplifying the preprocessor conditionals in C/C++ source code (#if and related directives) based on the the user's chosen interpretation of the preprocessor symbols.
Sunifdef is a more powerful successor to the FreeBSD 'unifdef' tool. Sunifdef is most useful to developers of constantly evolving products with large code bases, where preprocessor conditionals are used to configure the feature sets, APIs or implementations of different releases.
In these environments, the code base steadily accumulates #ifdef-pollution as transient configuration options become obselete. Sunifdef can largely automate the recurrent task of purging redundant #if-logic from the code.
