OK, so you have this in a test.js file:

document.write("<SCR" + "IPT TYPE=\"text/javascript\" SRC=\"whatever.js\"><\/SCR" + "IPT>

How do I send javascript variables from test.js to whatever.js?

Normally, one could have a script section before calling the script calling the external file, but I can't seem to get that to work.

In other words, how can I pass variables calculated in test.js to the external script whatever.js?

You don't need to pass anything. They both merge into one big script.

Any variables defined in the script before the doc.write() can be used in the 'imported' part of the script.
