            Variables pkgVars = pkg.Variables;  
            Variable myVar = pkg.Variables.Add("myCustomVar", false, "User", "3");  
  
            // Verify whether the variable is in the collection now.  
            Boolean hasMyVar = pkg.Variables.Contains("myCustomVar");  
            Console.WriteLine("The variable was found? {0}", hasMyVar);  
  
            Console.WriteLine("---------------------------");  
            // Loop over the collection using the foreach keyword.  
            foreach (Variable pkgVar in pkgVars)  
            {  
                // Print variables only from the User namespace.  
                if (pkgVar.Namespace == "User")

            pkg.Variables.Remove("myCustomVar");  
  
            // Loop over the collection again.  
            foreach (Variable pkgVar in pkgVars)
