Is there any way to get the name of a variable as a word
or conversely given a name get the variable.

I would like to write macros that define functions on the
fly based on a simple naming convention.
Now that I know how quoting and macros work (thanks guys)
the only problem is moving between word and variables.
Simply trying to concat a backslash ont the front of a word does not
seem to do the trick.
