the value is not always one-for-one lined up with keyword
thanks Rahul, I updated my post a bit.
For that subsequent value associated with the #define token/symbol, it would not always be as straightforward as substituting a keywork like "yahoo" or "google", or "bing", etc.
So if a developer defined a value to be something like "http://www.baanboard.com/search/site" and then associated that to a token named baan, such as
#define baan "http://www.baanboard.com/search/site"
then I'd like to somehow get the value "baan" from tccom999.srch and be able to then have a means to see that "baan" actually defined that value, "http://www.baanboard.com/search/site".
But all I try fails, and I only ever end up seeing "baan" as my value.
temp = tccom999.srch | this just sets temp to "baan"
get.var(pid, tccom999.srch, temp) | this too sets temp to "baan"
get.var(pid, "tccom999.srch", temp) |as does this also"
