macrology /mak-rol'*-jee/ /n./ 1. Set of usually complex or
crufty macros, e.g., as part of a large system written in
LISP, TECO, or (less commonly) assembler. 2. The art and
science involved in comprehending a macrology in sense 1.
Sometimes studying the macrology of a system is not unlike
archeology, ecology, or theology, hence the sound-alike
construction. See also boxology.
