Command Macro Support
The old SPFLite .SPM macros supported by previous SPFLite releases are no longer supported.
There is a separate Help document for programmable macros, which can be used either as edit primary-command macros and edit line-command macros. To view the separate Help document, you may enter HELP MACROS on the SPFLite command line. In addition, since the new macro facility utilizes thinBasic as the interpreter engine, help for thinBasic itself can be reached by entering HELP THINBASIC.
There is a macro called SPMConvert.MACRO, available which you can use this to convert any old SPM macros to the new thinBasic -based macro format.
Using the SPMConvert Conversion Aid
Since the old SPM style macros are usually very simple (they could only contain a series of Primary commands), the conversion of these macros to the new macro support is fairly straightforward. A conversion tool is available to assist in migrating your old .SPM macros to the new .MACRO format.
To do this, proceed as follows:
The only known items that the conversion does not handle are the complex substitution variables like ~K(...) and ~S(...).
