a bit more simplified, your macros c and d are:
In the macro c, the first and the third lines are just text to the macro
processor, thus they are stored as they are when compiled, and are generated
as text when the macro is executed, as the mprint option shows. in the macro
d, there is only one macro statement (a macro comment statement) which has
a double quoted string in it. hope this helps.
