I am creating multiple workspaces for a project, and I need a way to determine which is which, so I want a variable that can get into eclipse's current workspace name and set this to a simple String.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

you can set it as a preference in Preferences>General>Workspace (at
least in 3.6).

If you can't set a preference on the command line [1] then you would
have to set the preference after you start your workspace.

That doesn't really help me. See, I am created multiple workspace through the command line, and so if I set that in the master workspace before copying the master workspace, all of the workspace variables will point to the same path - which i need to get around.
