RE: st: RE: Macro questions. (Again).
In addition to the facilities recommended by
Ulrich and David, there is a very dusty
set of utilities called -listutil- on SSC.
These all predate -foreach-, -forval- and -macrolists-,
which remove most of the need for them, but
some of the commands, and/or some of the code,
might be useful.
