lists with variables?

is there a way to put a variable into a list? my brain aint working today...


ie:

Code:
some_list = {}
some_list["whatevre"] = {
"something something something " (some variable) " sometihng something.",
....
}
I mean other than a global variable thats made before it.. but if i wanted that variable to change more frequently.

I cannot tell if you are asking how to concatenate the text, or to pass a value 'by reference' into a table?


The concatenation operator is ..

"something something something" .. myVar .. "something something."




When you add the following to a table, it actually passes a reference or pointer to it:
- another table
- a function

But when you add the following to a table, it evaluates and passes the current value only:
- a number
- a string
