No there isn't. There's a wildcard for exporting all symbols in a
module, i.e. using a * instead of a symbol list.  For records there's
no such thing I am afraid. A lot of modules don't export some if
not all accessors to hide the actual implementation.

So for the time being you need to explicitly export the getters/setters
and the make- procedure unless you want to provide your own (maybe
with your application specific checks).



May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
suffering, and may you live with ease.
