data types and functions

Dear NCL users,

I am trying to loop through different variables by calling them by name
using an array with their various names predefined. To simplify my
question, I provide the following example:

If I have defined a variable named "winds", I can easily print out the
values it contains using the command print(winds).

However, if I have defined a variable named winds, and another variable
named winds_name = "winds", I cannot print out the values contained in
winds by typing print(
winds_name). Essentially, I need NCL to not care about the difference
between winds and winds_name. Is this possible? I tried using the
coercion functions, but that doesn't seem to be where the issue lies.
Thanks in advance for the help.
