    When is a $var[N] not $var[N]

      When is a square bracket variable not a repeating variable?

       

      Also, when is a square bracket variable visible as a merge variable?

       

      In another thread, the business of passing parameters with self-directed URLs was discussed.

       

      In the course of testing this, I experimented with passing repeating variables of the form $var[N]

       

      They don't seem to work. The square brackets seem to be recognized as text but not as repeat identifiers.

       

      You cannot display repeating variable as merge variables on a layout.

       

      However you CAN display square-bracket merge variables on a layout.

       

      You can see square bracket variable in the variable watcher.

       

      But you cannot set another variable to a square bracket variable.

       

      All a bit strange.
