A variable is a simple wrapper for a value to be placed in a scope. The variable class specified a couple properties, including:

  • Whether the variable is read-only

  • Whether the variable is static-typed.

  • Whether a getter/setter should be used, rather than the value

  • Whether the variable is public or private (only applicable within specific senarios)

In Cheddar, all scope values are CheddarVariables but this rule is not enforced. If a variable is not wrapped as a CheddarVariable, an uncaught error may occur.
