This is a tip for referencing macros from other modules without having to remember exactly its name.

This works really well when you segment your modules by category or type or any other logical system where you can look at the module name and know which types of macros are inside of them.

As well, this tip allows you to avoid ambiguous naming issues with your macros if you reuse the same names for multiple macros (procedures).
