I think that you must have misunderstood my questions. Since the
definition of RData_rule, png_rule, csv_rule are almost the same. I
want to have a macro that can automatically define these rules by
passing the parameter RData, png and csv.

I tried the following code. But they don't work. I'm not sure if it is
possible at all to define one macro to define another macro.

.PHONY: all

define rule_of_rull
define $1_rull
TARGET:=$(patsubst %.R,%.$1,$$1)

all: $$$$(TARGET)

$$$$(TARGET): $$1
        @echo $$$$@


$(eval $(call rule_of_rull,RData))

$(eval $(call RDATA_rull,some.R))
