will passing in its string name do ?

the result of calling a Parse_String is the literal replacement of that call
(code) with the contents of the file written.  I'd be likely to adapt the
existing Parse_String() to my needs.  fwiw, my Foreach() macro uses
user-supplied "payload" macros to process array data; though no use to you as
is, perhaps the '__cmdStr()' code may provide ideas.
