Control Macros

Control macros are used to control the processing and formatting of the templates. The basic types of control macro include:

  • The list macro, for generating multiple element features, such as attributes and operations
  • The branching macros, which form if-then-else constructs to conditionally execute parts of a template
  • The PI macro for formatting new lines in the output, which takes effect from the next non-empty line
  • A PI function macro that enables setting PI to a variable and adds the ability to set the PI that is generated before the next line
  • The synchronization macros

In general, control macros are named according to Camel casing.
