$definevariable

The $definevariable QC command creates a variable. The variable's name, if surrounded by $s, will be substituted by its value whenever encountered.

Note:Variables do not work within "quote blocks"!
Note:Variables do not work within macros either. You can pass the data on to the macro by using it as a token when running it.
Note:If you define the same variable twice, the compiler will use the first one it finds and drop the second one.

This command is a 'lite' version of $definemacro.

Example

$definevariable baseFile "fighter1"

$sequence attack $baseFile$_Attack
$sequence run $baseFile$_Run
$sequence idle $baseFile$_Idle
