Sometimes when coding complex indicators, it would be far more efficient to write code where the plot number can be specified by a variable. In such cases rather than having to code PlotN(value, "name"); it would be far more efficient to code Plot(N, value, name), where N is an integer and name is a string. This is actually two feature requests, one for variable plot numbers (N) and one for variable names (name); either one is useful, both together are very useful.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Try to efficiently code a 100 plots where the difference between the plots is based on a formula where the outputs are figured in a for loop.

Another "feature request" showing clearly that El needs to evolve as a true OO language.

I need to plot in the same subchart, a function computed on a set of 10 Instruments:
arrays: Colors10;
(... Initialisation of the 10 colors...)
for n=1 to 10 Begin
Plot(n, MyFunction(Close of data(n), Symbol of data(n), Colors[n]);
