What I think you recall is P J Brown's ML/I. This was, maybe still is, one
of the best macro processors ever written.
Back in my days as a DEC-10 systems programmer I remember that the sources
of ML/I were included in the DECUS library tapes. Though I remember that it
was not of itself difficult to implement. Brown wrote about some of the
ideas within ML/I in his book ``Macro Processors''.
If anyone still has the source of ML/I I would love a copy of it. It is
hard to use the C pre-processor or any other macro processor when one has
