For example, function foo may call other functions which in turn call other functions ... until finally the bottom function may need to access say the variable - x1. Having to repeatedly pass the entire or selected parts of the variable space can get unwieldy and impact on the final code's readability. Thanks. I really don't understand what you are trying to achieve here ... but perhaps you will find some inspiration in this: With[{args = {x1,x2,x3,x4,x5}}, DynamicModule[args, oo@@args; oo@@args; ... ] ] With[] will just subsitute {x1,x2,x3,x4,x5} for every instance of args before it evaluates its body.
