    Sometimes it is useful make your arrays compile-time, for example to embed data from files, to pre-calculate heavy calculations, generating lookup tables and other similar things. With macros this is perfectly doable but requires some basic knowledge of expression building. In this article you will find out how to build arrays and return them as expressions in a macro function.‥

    This example lets you take a file next to the current module .hx file and include its file content. That can be very useful if you want to separate (for example) view templates, shader sources or other multiline texts from the Haxe source. The articles demonstrates how to do it with an expression macro but also with a build macro.‥
