Tools for teaching macros

Abstract:
During image analysis training sessions using ImageJ, participants are always very interested in the macro language, because they quickly understand that it will provide them with a relatively simple way of building a tailored solution to complete their image analysis and processing tasks. When it comes to writing their first macros, however, the barriers of learning the functions names and syntax can be discouraging to some students. In this poster, I will present a set of basic tools that I have put together that allow easy writing of complex macros, including the macro functions finder, based on M. Longair's command finder plugin, a set of action bars proving 'click and paste' macro code snippets for common structures like dialogs, loops or plots, and a remote macro sharing system that allows synchronization of the instructor's current macro editor with the classroom.
