Macros, Expansion Issues

  • Stephan von Bechtolsheim
Part of the Monographs in Visual Communication book series (VISUALCOMM)


In this chapter we will further investigate macros and start with looking into \edef which implements a form of macro definition where at the time the macro definition occurs the replacement text is expanded. We will look into expansion issues with macros in general and also discuss among other things nested macro definitions.
