 The making and using of macros is really not all that complicated and
I have not seen anyone attempt to write a tutorial on the subject.

 Most of the mystery behind how they work is all of the other programming
like commands that have been part of Pov for a while now like while loops,
if / else directives, and other similar functions. You can learn a lot by
looking at examples of other peoples macros and fortunately for you I just
posted 58 of them on my home page 2 days ago.

 Making a macro is simple. Making useful commands to feed to a macro is the
difficult part. You might want to visit my links page tutorials section to
look at some of the more advanced tutorials.

 The closest thing to organic macros I have seen are a couple of tree
generating macros. See my links page or the povray.org links page for
sites that contain them.
