Thanks, but that only applies the macro to the last line of the region. I want it to apply it to every line within the region.


How about you mark the region, then `M-='. This runs `count-lines-region'. And then run `M-<no_of_lines> M-x foo'

Its not very clean but that should do it.


That will work fine provided that the macro itself contains a command to move to the next/previous line. Otherwise the same action will be done n times on the one line the macro was run on.

HTH.
