I'm trying to read the foreign code document, what is "[syntax]" that

[syntax] (foreign-code STRING ...)

Using this case as an example, there is no procedure called "foreign-code".  Rather there is a macro called foreign-code that, when evaluated, expands into some other form. In general, macros can be viewed as a way of defining new syntax for the language.

Does that help?
