You could take a look at how parse_trans does it:

https://github.com/esl/parse_trans/blob/master/src/parse_trans_pp.erl#L65

It uses erl_pp instead of erl_prettypr for reasons I have since forgotten
(it was something that, at one time, erl_prettypr had problems with, but
erl_pp was able to handle).
