Heh heh. I'm also an enthusiastic Kaleidagraph fan, but
hate the macro language. I'm currently doing some fairly complicated
analysis that would be greatly simplified by the use of macros, but
after spending hours trying to figure it out, I finally gave up.
Writing a macro in Kaleidagraph is almost like programming in assembly
language... Has anyone out there actually written macros?
If Kaleidagraph has such a faithful following, perhaps Synergy
would be interested in either simplifying the macro language or
creating a front-end to the macro language... This would greatly
enhance the power of Kaleidagraph.
