Macros

The job of macros is to abstract away verbose syntactic patterns. In other words, macros are rules of rewriting one syntax into another.

Macros are good for

  • rewriting without evaluating of syntactic forms
  • specialized bindings, conditionals, looping, simplification
  • performing computations at compile time
  • in-place splicing
