Makro naredba, jednostavan način za pravljenje prečica i za automatizovanje poslova ili procedura u programu. Postoje dve vste makroa: tasterski i programski. Tasterski beleže pritiske na tastere (i kretanje miša) a potom reprodukuju ove akcije - za to je obično dovoljno da zadate samo jednu naredbu. Programski makroi rade kao programski jezik i služe za automatizovanje poslova, donošenje odlulka i izvođenje složenih operacija koje su suviše kompleksne za tasterskje makroe.
macro / mækroʊ /
A single computer instruction that results in a series of instructions in machine language.
1. In applications, a set of keystrokes and instructions recorded and saved under a short key code or macro name. When the key code is typed or the macro name is used, the program carries out the instructions of the macro. Users can create a macro to save time by replacing an often-used, sometimes lengthy, series of strokes with a shorter version.
2. In programming languages, such as C or assembly language, a name that defines a set of instructions that are substituted for the macro name wherever the name appears in a program (a process called macro expansion) when the program is compiled or assembled. Macros are similar to functions in that they can take arguments and in that they are calls to lengthier sets of instructions. Unlike functions, macros are replaced by the actual instructions they represent when the program is prepared for execution; function instructions are copied into a program only once. Compare function (definition 2).
In computer programming, a new command created by combining a number of existing ones. For example, if a programming language has separate commands for obtaining data from the keyboard and for displaying data on the screen, the programmer might create a macro that performs both these tasks with one command. A macro key on the keyboard combines the effects of pressing several individual keys.
