Re: [EP-tech] calculated phrase ref

Pretty much exactly like that…  Cheers Rory.


I knew there’d be an example, I just couldn’t find one for looking!

Subject: [EP-tech] calculated phrase ref


Is it possible (and if so how) to pass a calculated value to the ref parameter of a phrase call in the citation file, so it will include a value as part of the phrase reference?


e.g.    I want to include something like

<epc:phrase ref=”module_$code” />


so it will include phrases based labelled  “module_a1”, “module_xyz4321”


I know I could do an if test on the value for $code and select different phrases that way but I was trying to be clever / lazy and not have to update the citation definition for every new module that I add to a namedset.
