Question Faking a 2D array and % symbols on output

Hey all,

I've managed to cobble together a script that fakes a 2-dimensional array. Unformatted and raw from my text editor: (the []'s aren't required, but just a convention I sort of like)
Code:
set i 0 set j 0 set m 0 set n 0 if count == %cmd% while %i% <= 5 set array[%i%][j] %m% while %j% <= 5 set array[i][%j%] %n% eval n %n% + 1 eval j %j% + 1 done eval m %m% + 1 eval i %i% + 1 set j 0 done set i 0 set j 0 while %i% <= 5 while %j% <= 5 %echo% %%%array[%%i%%][%%j%%]%%% eval j %j% + 1 done eval i %i% + 1 set j 0 done else return 0 end

Which seems to work except I get %'s in the output which I really don't want.

#LOG: LOGGING OUTPUT TO 'fake2dlist.log' FILESIZE: 0

Jess the test MOB. has arrived.
set krell level 20
Krell's level set to 20.

Edgar the test MOB leaves north.
#log off


Is there any way to get rid of them and still get the output I want? I've tried varying the level of %'s on the variable, but it either puts the name of the list or just the names i and j.

Thomas has written up a wonderful explanation of %s .

I'm not sure if this is the problem because, you know, I have some problems understanding the complex stuff but I hope you'll find it helpful anyway. And if not, hey, it gives people a chance to see it after 6 years because it's important.

I'll have to mull this over, just trying to apply it without thinking about the implication thoroughly is only tripping me up. But yeah, I do seem to recall this.

Hope to see you around more, Parna. Miss you.

Yep, that fixed it. Almost exactly as Thomas explained it. I had to track how many levels the percent symbol was at, and I had to use more eval statements then I originally wanted. Last night I wasn't able to wrap my head around it, but now it works. Thanks again, Parna. You're the best.
Code:
set i 0 set j 0 set m 0 set n 0 if count == %cmd% while %i% <= 5 set array[%i%][j] %m% while %j% <= 5 set array[i][%j%] %n% eval n %n% + 1 eval j %j% + 1 done eval m %m% + 1 eval i %i% + 1 set j 0 done set i 0 set j 0 while %i% <= 5 while %j% <= 5 eval temp %%array[%%%i%%][%%j%%]%% eval temp2 %temp% %echo% %temp2% eval j %j% + 1 done eval i %i% + 1 set j 0 done else return 0 end
