No, that's absolutely impossible. Macros are handled before the compiler ever sees the code. That's why they are called preprocessor macros.

Depending on what you really want, function templates may be what you need.

Please provide details.

I don't think the preprocessor understands namespaces. Thus, I don't think it's possible.

You cannot. Macros are handled by the preprocessor, and do not follow namespaces or scope. Depending on what kind of macro you are writing, however, you could replace it with a const variable or a typedef, which can be put in a namespace.

You can always get around it by having a naming standard. Say all macros in the standard namespace gets named STD_NAMEOFMACRO etc. Templates will solve most problems much better than macros though.
