That's not the why, that's the what. Indeed you already wrote what
you want.

I'm asking *why* you want it, because what you ask for doesn't make
sense, so either I don't understand your situation (not at all unlikely)
or there might be a better approach to get what you want (also possible).

Again, why modify the values at run time?

Why isn't setting these values at build time enough?

Kind regards
