st: RE: renpfix error 'variable already defined'
There are indeed other ways to rename variables.
Naturally, they all use -rename- at some point.
Apart from -rename- itself, -renvars- is one
user-written command. -search renvars- and
download from the STB site.
However, I am not clear that you need to
rename at all in your case.
