Create 'subroutines' for modular, top-down macro design?


Recommended Posts

:ph34r: Hey folks,


I've looked through the archives, and I can't seem to find something similiar to my question, so here goes.


I'm wondering if it's possible to assign macro script commands to variables? I'm pursuing top-down programming, similar to what's found here.


Yes, I know it's PHP and HTML. I'm trying to work the idea, not the specific code found on that page.


Can we assign several lines of script to a variable, and then create a 'backbone' macro that calls those variables?


I'm currently experimenting with the method that ejs proposed here.


Has anyone tried this?

IMHO the best way to do this is the way I do it. :unsure:


What I do is create small reusable macros to use as subroutines. In the parent macro I use the Macro Run command and if I need to pass data between I do it with the registry. Works slick. I have some examples here.



I don't know if that's what you're looking for but..
