Using Assember Macros in C

Hey guys,

First of all excuse me if this is in the wrong section, I think I am OK though.

I am writing a C programme on the HCS12 but need to use some assembler in it. I am using the __asm{}.

The assembler I need to input is a bit repetitive, i.e using the same statements again. I understand macros can be used to reduce the code written.

Two questions:

Can I use macros when I am embedding assembler in C and if so where can I put it?
Are there any extra clock cycles added on using macros instead of just writing the code?
