namedef – definitions with named parameters

This package provides a prefix \named to be used in definitions so that parameters can be identified by their name rather than by number, giving parameters a semantic rather than syntactic meaning, making it easy to understand long definitions.

A usual definition reads:

      \def\SayHello#1{Hello, #1!}

but with namedef you can replace #1 by, say, #[person]:

      \named\def\SayHello#[person]{Hello, #[person]!}

and \named will figure out the numbering of the parameters for you.
