Journal ReciprocityProject's Journal: An hour of my life I'll never get back :-/ 2

I'm not going to tell you what this is supposed to do, or even what language it's written in.  See if you can find the line of code that doesn't belong with the others.  (hint: it's really, really lame)

#macro lerptounit( a, b, p )
    ((p-a)/(b-a))
#end

#macro bilerp( a, b, aprime, control, bprime, p )
  ((lerptounit( a, b, p ) * (control-aprime) + aprime) * (1-lerptounit( a, b, p )) +
  (lerptounit( a, b, p ) * (bprime-control) + control) * lerptounit( a, b, p ))
#end

#macro camera_position( p )
  (
  #if( p < 3 )
    x*bilerp( 0, 3, -100000, -2500, -1000, p )

If you push the "extra ice" button on the soft drink vending machine, you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get ice, but no cup.
