package macros


The base package for Scala macros.

Macros are functions that are called by the compiler during compilation. Within these functions the programmer has access to compiler APIs. For example, it is possible to generate, analyze and typecheck code.

See the Macros Guide on how to get started with Scala macros.

package runtime

Entry points into runtime reflection. See the overview page for details on how to use them.
