Dear Ruby gurus:

Are there Ruby macro features as a part of Ruby standard?
I want them to work with ANY editor or interactive environment and with 
ANY OS

Why?

Because it is distracting to key-in:

 def a1
  @a1
  end
  def a1=(value)
  @a1=value
  end

when you are thinking just about class' very general behaviour.
I would prefer to key-in something like this initially:

  %def a1

and POSSIBLY add: -r, or -w, or -rw
on early design stage.  Entering all the juzz above distracts strongly.
I'm going to work on details later.

Besides, I work on various systems and I want to have unified macro 
options just by installing Ruby.

Thank you,
Henry
