Abstract : An extension to the macro-processing facilities of the 7040 IBMAP language is described. The new features afford additional capability in the handling of character strings, the selection of macro parameters, and the transferring of control within macros. In addition, features have been introduced that permit decision making during the construction of macro definitions. As a result, the ability of macros to define other macros is considerably extended. Taken together, the RACMAP features significantly increase the range of applications that may be handled by macro processing. (Author)
