Can anyone tell me anything about the history of Lisp macros? I seem
to remember that the idea was introduced during the early seventies
into MacLisp. I thought that there was an MIT-AI memo or some such
document that actually contained the original proposal, but I can't
seem to find anything like that.
Anybody know the real story? Do macros go back further than this?
Was MacLisp really the first Lisp to have them? Thanks in advance.
