Hey all,

I need help making a macro.

I have an existing procedure of the form

(call-method self method (...))

Note that SELF is a struct, METHOD is a string, and the ellipses can
be anything.

I would like to make a macro that transforms into the above, but, is
of the form

(send self (method ...))

where SELF is the same struct, METHOD is a literal symbol, and the
ellipses are unchanged.

For example, I would like to call

(send date (get-year))
(send date (set-year 2018))
(send date (set-dmy 1 1 2018))

and have it be

(call-method date "get-year" '())
(call-method date "set-year" (list 2018))
(call-method date "set-dmy" (list 1 1 2018))

I get hung up on figuring out how to handle the literal symbol and the

If you need context, see

Thanks in advance,

Mike Gran
