-===== Performing Many Macros Silently ===== 
  
-In some cases, you'll want to do several things with macros at once. For example, in this passage from the previous section: 
- 
-> All you possess is an Axe (note under Weapons on your Action Chart) and a Backpack containing 1 Meal (note under Meals on your Action Chart). 
- 
-(Joe Dever, //Flight from the Dark//) 
- 
-You'd probably want to set both the protagonist'​s weapon and number of meals. You can do this without any extraneous whitespace appearing in your story by putting all the ''<<​set>>''​ statements on the same line: 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-All you possess is an Axe and a Backpack containing 1 Meal. <<set $meals = 1>> <<set $weapon = "​axe">>​ 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-This is not particularly readable, however. The ''<<​silently>>''​ macro can help in these situations, like so: 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-All you possess is an Axe and a Backpack containing 1 Meal. <<​silently>>​ 
-<<set $meals = 1>> 
-<<set $weapon = "​axe">>​ 
-<<​endsilently>>​ 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Everything between <<​silently>>​ and <<​endsilently>>​ is run, but nothing is displayed.
