Initial Code
(defun kmacro-call-macro (arg &optional no-repeat end-macro)
  "Call the last keyboard macro that you defined with \\[kmacro-start-macro].
A prefix argument serves as a repeat count.  Zero means repeat until error.

When you call the macro, you can call the macro again by repeating
just the last key in the key sequence that you used to call this
command.  See `kmacro-call-repeat-key' and `kmacro-call-repeat-with-arg'
for details on how to adjust or disable this behavior.

To make a macro permanent so you can call it even after defining
others, use \\[kmacro-name-last-macro]."
  (interactive "p")
  (let ((repeat-key (and (null no-repeat)
			 (> (length (this-single-command-keys)) 1)
    (if end-macro
	(kmacro-end-macro arg)
      (call-last-kbd-macro arg #'kmacro-loop-setup-function))
    (when (consp arg)
      (setq arg (car arg)))
    (when (and (or (null arg) (> arg 0))
	       (setq repeat-key
		     (if (eq kmacro-call-repeat-key t)
      (setq repeat-key-str (format-kbd-macro (vector repeat-key) nil))
      (while repeat-key
	(if (equal repeat-key (read-event))
	      (clear-this-command-keys t)
	      (call-last-kbd-macro (and kmacro-call-repeat-with-arg arg)
	      (setq last-input-event nil))
	  (setq repeat-key nil)))
      (when last-input-event
	(clear-this-command-keys t)
	(setq unread-command-events (list last-input-event))))))
