Macro comments

%macro aQuestion;

%* this code doesn't have any problems does it?;

%put Why are macro comments handled so badly?;
%put I mean, we are at version 9 here people.;
%put I wonder what version number will handle macro comments correctly?;
%put Version 10, 12, 14...?;
%put I wonder at what version number I will finally remember to stop using contractions in my comments!;

%mend aQuestion;



  1. I guess that^s why some old folks get into the habit of using a caret character (^) instead of the apostrophe almost all the time. Isn^t it funny?

  2. I like it. I think I^ll start to adopt that as my own. I wonder how long it will be until it starts to creep out of my regular programming and into daily use? I often catch myself putting a space between my parentheses when writing ( like this ).
