Sounds like you needQuote:>I want to be able to get $(value_of_result) so that it is

A=`eval echo \$$RESULT`
where the first pass results in a $ followed by the value of RESULT,
which is then turned over to echo, and set into the variable A when
command substitution occurs.
The problem is, \$$ returns the current PID.
Can someone refine this so that it works?
