and
this method:

public static Object translateVariables(char[] openChars, String expression, ValueStack stack, Class asType, ParsedValueEvaluator evaluator, int maxLoopCount) {
// deal with the "pure" expressions first!
//expression = expression.trim();
Object result = expression;
for (char open : openChars) {
.........
while (true) {
..........
String var = expression.substring(start + 2, end);

Object o = stack.findValue(var, asType);
