I meant 'se minde' to (perhaps selminde) to imply something that takes
commands, ie a command interpreter.
Also I meant command-interpreter-variable to mean environment variable.

I was trying of course to come up with a word for value - something which can
be either a number or a string or some other concept (such as object). The
reason I said varying-value (or tried to say) was to seperate it from a
constant-value. Additionally I didn't use data-container since that seemed
to imply the physical memory, or perhaps a device. I was thinking about
combinations of data-at-label-location which would be reminiscent of what
is actually happening in the computer with label-location & location meaning
other related things.

I lost the line, but I also used ciska incorrectly. I was trying to say
the typed-command. I am missing something though. What am I doing right now?
(ie typing e-mail) I would say 'mi ciska le skama xatra' even though that
cannot be taken literally at all. (I won't mention the missing gismu for
"electronics" :) )..
