The validity of Terry's answer (which is true for the general case)
aside, it might be possible to do what you are trying to do
if you could explain what it is you are really trying to accomplish,
rather than just asking about how you think you should accomplish

(Ideas involving string.replace and exec come to mind, but
it's impossible to say whether that might work in your
context until you provide more background.)
