05/19/2011 in How To

Once thing I really like about ColdFusion that many other languages do not support is the ability to create variables using variables..

For example:
<cfset v="name">
<cfset "first#v#"="David">
This creates a variable called firstname.


This would output:
Easy. Used creatively, this functionality enables you to really create some real cool code. So what are you waiting for, go get creative!
