Re: [QF-Test] 'if' condition for string

Hi Richard,

'$(var)' == "whatever" works as well as long as you have no special
characters like backslashes or any language specific characters.

rc.lookup("var") takes care about escaping those characters correctly.

Best Regards,

One of my co-workers discovered that in a string comparison in a 'if'
node can be written: '$(strVar)' == "whatEverString"
Instead of:
rc.lookup("strVar") == "whatEverString"
like it is recommended in the technical manual.

As I didn't find this in the book, tell me your opinion about this and is
this error prone?
