Hi naseeam,

you can use variadic macros, this are macros with a variable argument list. There are some restrictions for using them but searching the web one can find even a lot of tricks/workarounds.

For further info maybe a good start to read is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variadic_macros

Hope that helps,
