Subject Re: visibility of the variable/parameter
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 19:44:00 GMT
Thanks for your reply Ben and Antoine.

Ben: In my case what I am planning to implement, I won't be able to use
'depends'.

So, prob. I will have to use a work around of writing down the values to
some file. But, still I am wondering if I could find out some other option.

Thanks,
- Dharmesh.
