(defmacro f_x ...)

[ #30179 ]
Dear Log,

Today's inane new elisp macro of mine:

(defmacro f_x (&rest Body)
 "Make these expressions a function with 'x' holding its one parameter"
 (list 'function (cons 'lambda (cons (cons 'x nil) Body))))

So this:

(f_x (print "I like pie and %s" x) (* 3.14 x))

is a handy shorthand that expands to this:

(function (lambda (x) (print "I like pie and %s" x) (* 3.14 x)))

  • This just came to me; I stole the idea from the implicitly-declared parameters in Perl 6.

    (defmacro fn (&rest body)
      (let* ((env (make-hash-table :test 'eq))
             (new-body (fn-expand env `(progn ,@body)))
             (parameters '()))
        (maphash #'(lambda (key &optional value)
                     (setq parameters (cons key parameters)))
