Template function 'if variable value equal to fixed string then do X'?

Hello,

first of all I have recently started exploring the topic of audio ripping and am still getting familiar with CUETools.
Therefore, please forgive me if I write impossible nonsense here or (even worse) things that are already possible.
It's not like I didn't try. I've probably been sitting here for more than 2 hours and playing around with the template function and also learned several things with help of the wikis.

Well, I'd like to know if it might be possible to compare a fixed value with the result of a variable via the template function and execute an action depending on the result?

I imagine it like this:
Code: [Select]
$ifstringequal(%genre%,Soundtrack,' ('OST')')

or in total:

$ifstringequal(%artist%,Various Artists,VA - )[%year% - ]%album%$ifstringequal(%genre%,Soundtrack,' ('OST')') %CODEC%

Folder name: VA - 1994 - Pulp Fiction (OST) FLAC

Greetings
Martin

No.
Also keep in mind that CUETools template syntax is "based on" foobar2000 title formatting syntax. This simply means the foobar2000 title formatting syntax was a source of inspiration. Do not assume functions and variables available in foobar2000 are available in CUETools.

Ok, thanks for clarifying.

It would be great if the developers would consider adding such a feature then.
Maybe even in the form of support for a scripting language like LUA or JS. I think that would open up a lot of potential.
