comment Is there a \newcommand manager program?
@egreg Yes, it looks like a contracdiction. I mean I know what \axnzn means, but I always forget if I already defined or not \aynzn. Also, checking this is tedious. I guess clarity is a subjective matter. Still, our discussion effortlessly use \aznyn without ambiguity.

comment Is there a \newcommand manager program?
@BenediktBauer I understand your point, I was afraid of this side effect, when I begin using this method. But, after using it for while, I found my latex code is expressive. Somehow, the exact definition of the command doesn't matter. When I write on sequence I know what I mean by \xn, so if I want to talk about convergence of \xn - \zn, the meaning guide me in the \newcommand maze. As for clarity, define \axnzn as \left| x_n - z_n \right|. Then, a phrase like "If \axnzn is small then \axnyn is small" (note the yn), is really clear.

@jfbu Your post help a lot to understand tex programming. I understand that the code has limitation, but this is also a lesson your post teach. Thank you.

comment Flexible parenthesing command
@egreg Maybe this deserves another question. Why are latex parsing rules so different than programming language parsing rules? Is it for compilation speed? In a python world say, \p(f(2)) would be \left( f(2) \right).
