I need to put simplified formulas into CForm without using the Power function. I only have integer powers, so if I can evaluate transformations without having Mathematica apply its own evaluation to the result, I can eliminate them. Something like

CForm[Hold[1+Power[x,3]//.{Power[x,1]->x,Power[x,n]->x * Power[x,n-1]}]]

but that doesn't work because Hold[] prevents transformations, too.

Maybe I am approaching this from the wrong direction. Is there a way to cancel the standard evaluation part of the read/evaluate loop, then use Simplify[] explicitly when I want it?

I am a beginner in using Mathematica, so I don't have the big picture yet. I may be missing something very simple.
