The idea of macros, is best known in the context of C/C++, however the 
idea of writing elegant (and maintainable!) code which is changed into 
something more efficient prior to execution, has a much wider appeal.

As part of my talk at the recent technology conference in Champaign, 
about writing effienct Mathematica code, I introduced the idea of macro 
processing in Mathematica. I have just updated my website to add a free 
package that implements simple macro processing. Please contact me if 
you have any questions or comments. My email address can be found at the 
top of my website, embedded in an image to protect it from non-human access!
