I want to define such macro (mymacro) that

Code:
mymacro name
mymacro anothername
mymacro yetanothername
    


is assembled to

Code:
name equ anothermacro 1
anothername equ anothermacro 2
yetanothername equ anothermacro 3
    


and so on 'mymacro nextname' is assembled to 'nextname equ anothermacro 4'...

How can I do it?

Code:
define counter@mymacro 0

macro mymacro name
{
 match c,counter@mymacro \{ rept 2 x:c \\{ define counter@mymacro x \\} \}
 match c,counter@mymacro \{ name equ anothermacro c \}
}    

First line of the macro increases the counter@mymacro by 1, the second one does the assignment you requested.

You can also make it as one-liner Wink

Code:
macro mymacro name { match c,counter@mymacro \{ rept 2 x:c \\{ define counter@mymacro x \\} \} match c,counter@mymacro \{ name equ anothermacro c \} } define counter@mymacro 0

If really feels like what we're looking for here is ENUM, maybe try that one out.

Thank you, it's the thing that I need. Is it impossible to do that without 'match' and 'rept'? Madis731, I need to place 'mymacro' anywhere in source, so ENUM doesn't look like a good idea.
