Subject: using variables in org text
Date: Thu, 16 Feb 2012 15:35:50 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <4F3D1446.50508@gmail.com> (raw)

Hash: SHA1


I have defined a variable as follow

#+property: var  DC="/home/rkrug/tmp/CLUSTER"

and I am using this path quite often in source blocks (works nicely as
expected) but also in org directly, e.g.

* DC path is $DC$
  The DC path $DC$ is pointing to a directory.

Is it possible to use the variable DC in the text as well, so that
$DC$ is replaced with the value of the variable DC as defined above?
In other words: how can I tell org that on export, $DC$ stands for the
value of the variable DC?



PS: I know that $...$ is for LaTeX math mode
