18 * @brief Variable for variable expansion.
19 *
20 * @section variable_intro Introduction
21 *
22 * A Variable is used by the KTextEditor::Editor to expand variables, also
23 * know as expanding macros. A Variable itself is defined by the variable
24 * name() as well as a description() and a function that replaces the variable
25 * by its value.
26 *
27 * To register a Variable in the Editor use either Editor::registerVariableMatch()
28 * or Editor::registerPrefixMatch().
29 *
30 * @see KTextEditor::Editor, KTextEditor::Editor::registerVariableMatch(),
31 * KTextEditor::Editor::registerPrefixMatch()
