I'm trying to do some simple string matching and find match works nicely when 
the string is a literal list of chars like

  (match '(@A "C" "I" "T" "Y" @B) description)

but I need to match on a variable string stored in varstring which then needs 
to get chopped (I think).  I'm running into problems with

  (setq varstring "CITY")
  (match '(@A (chop varstring) @B) description)

perhaps the function in the middle of the quote is the problem?  Or the extra 
list introduced by chop?

Any guidance appreciated.
