With your version, there’s a problem when using with only 2 arguments:

```
julia> x = 4
4
julia> @limit x 2
4
julia> x # here, x should be 2, because we are limiting it to a max value of 2
4
julia> y = 8
8
julia> @limit y 9
9
julia> y # y should still be 8 here
9
```

Also, if the user chooses to pass a variable as argument instead of a number:

```
julia> max = 10
10
julia> @limit y max
ERROR: LoadError: MethodError: no method matching typemax(::Symbol)

```

And yes, my version of the macro is still wrong, (it only works properly with 3 arguments):

```
julia> x = 4
4
julia> @limit x 2
2
julia> x # should be 2, so here it works
2
julia> y = 8
8
julia> @limit y 9
9
julia> y # should be 8 here
9
```

But this version works with both 2 and 3 arguments:

```
macro limit(name, min, max=nothing)
if isnothing(max)
max = min
min = :(typemin($min))
end
return esc( :($name = clamp($name, $min, $max)) )
end
```

```
julia> x = 4
4
julia> @limit x 2
2
julia> x
2
julia> y = 8
8
julia> @limit y 9
8
julia> y
8
julia> z = 10
10
julia> @limit z 5 8
8
julia> z
8
julia> w = 5
5
julia> min, max = 2, 10
(2, 10)
julia> @limit w min max
5
julia> w
5
```
