It is not so much the syntax but the implementation. The CS4 version
only allows one such macro, and only an orchestra macro. I suspect I
need --omacro:FOO=bar and --smacro:HUM=bug
In the same vein I have also written code for #ifdef...#end for
conditional compilation. The code is low quality; does not allow
nesting of #ifdef at all as skipping is to next #end
Currently in csound4 only. In cs5 I would still rather do this
properly. I want the functionality for sure.
