comment Can I have a curly brace as macro argument delimiter?
yes, I think this is the answer I need :) By the way, what is \bye supposed to do ? for my TeX, it is just an undefined control sequence...

well, it seems to me, that the idea you wrote in your comment above is precisely egreg's solution. Is it something more ?

can you make this in an expandable way ? I would appreciate a few lines of code.

my guesses : (1) the name of the command is \mwx\temp, and therefore not accessible by a direct call. (2) without the \string, TeX will try to expand \temp inside the \csname and produce an error, since it does not exists. Am i right ?

(sorry for the stupid questions, but i'm not used to \csname...
