Ex: for use in cout << “ line number: “ << XXX <<
It is possible to hard code a cout << "line number
XXX"; but if the program were to change the number of
lines before the cout, the cout << "line number XXX";
will no longer be correct.
A variable that at pre-compile time will be replaced
with the line number that it is on, just for the
compiler, which would be updated before every time the
