# [texhax] saved macro files?

Maybe something along the lines of :

JN-Test.tex :

\input \jobname.macros
...
\end

JN-Test.macros :

\input macro-set-1
\input macro-set-2
...

Using this technique, every master file (e.g., JN-Test.tex)
has associated with it a single macro file with the same
name but the extension ".macros"; that file then inputs
any macros common to all jobs plus macros unique to that
particular job.

In your own words, "clear as mud ?" !
