comment Is it possible to use a macro to name a TikZ node?
Great, nice to know! In one implementation I built the answer in binary with \pretocmd and \edef which worked. Now I know why converting to decimal with \pgfmathbasetodec broke it. I see lots of interesting stuff in expl3. Thanks.

comment Is it possible to use a macro to name a TikZ node?
I am trying to compute a number and then use the number as the name for a TikZ node. I hoped that how the macro is implemented would not matter. I have implemented the function in several different ways, such as recursive macro definitions with edef, TikZ maths, and Tex counters (as shown here). None worked. However <code>\def\myothermacro#1#2{#1AAA#2}</code> works fine I must be doing something bad with Tex.
