If you put the parentheses around the body of the macro, you won't have
to babysit the macro with each call:

 #macro subclock2( start, complete, cnt)
   // converts time (in cnt) between start and complete into
   // a value between 0 and 1
 (
   #if (cnt< start)
  0
   #else
  #if (cnt>complete)
    1
  #else
    ((cnt - start) / (complete - start))
  #end
   #end
 )
 #end // subclock2
