Is there a way to use a variable that gets changed in the main process for an external subroutine?

Main process:
setVar $i 1
WHILE ($i < 10)
--stuff--
add $i 1
END

external subroutine:
:Top
echo $i (I want this to be the one from the main process)
goto :Top

untested but try

echo $~i

not sure if it works, but i thought i saw Xide give an example of the sort in a previous thread.

Thanks SupG, but no-go. It finally occured to me that if I create a menu with the main and setMenuContents with it I can getMenuContents with an external. Thats a whole lot cleaner than what I thought I would have to do, write a temp file to disk just to pass data :(.
