[ragel-users] access variable in expression?

Am I able to use the value of a variable as an expression, and if so, how?

I am trying to parse a language like this:

number = digit+ >start_capture_number_of_names
%end_capture_number_of_names '\n';
name = ^[\n]* '\n';
main := number name{number_of_names}

where number_of_names is the number I captured earlier.

Can I do it this way, or do I need to iterate using actions and the
statements defined in 3.4 of the manual?
