If you don't know what the metaphor is referencing it means noting to you.
Basically its out of scope to the computer.


Yeah, that's why having a converter would be a cool thing. I might actually try and make one with events. Atm, I'm still doing it in a slog way, by comparing variable, and setting two local vars values to global vars values.

Oh, I missed that, yip, no such functionality, I think your dictionary suggestion is right on target. Dictionary is a great choice as you can create both "name" and "key" so will suit this much better.
