Subject': minor surgery performed...'
To':   JonL, LispSupport'
(b) I also installed the expansion of macros at a much ''higher'' level (or closer to the source), before DWIMFLG is tested and a large amount of otherwise unnecessary processing was done.'
This means that macro expansion can continue even when users turn off DWIM. '
Now': I think I''ve completed the surgery, but I haven''t sewn the patient back together yet': I''m working on Maxc and have tested the new DWIM and macro expansion interpreted, but I have not compiled the new versions. They are DWIMIFY and MACROS on <LispCore>Sources>. '
Both files need BCOMPL rather than TCOMPL.'
I will attempt compilation on Monday.'
