Writing functions that automatically localize dummy variables? ( like Table,Sum,etc...)
Posted:

Hello, I often find myself writing functions that have dummy variables a la Integrate, Table, Sum, etc.
The builtin functions have a nice feature where they automatically localize the variable as you type in the argument that specifys the dummy variable. e.g.
Table[k, {k (*< i is scoped and turns green immedietely when typed here *), 1, 2}]
Is there a way to give my own functions this feature?
Thank you for any help.
