And then you are stuck FOREVER into defining EAPI as a variable.

You clearly haven't read anything on this thread. I suggest you go and

Please guys, keep in mind that the fact that some of you understand what
a filename is and are able to provide simple commands that extract a

required to contribute something useful to this discussion.
