Is there anyway to indent output based on the integer value of an variable?
for example...
if

then

will indent "hello" three times over and output
>[/n][/n][/n]Hello
and not
>Hello

One strategy you might consider would be use a loop to prefix your output with the appropriate number of space characters. Take a look at http://www.asciitable.com to find which character is the space character (hint: it's number 32).
